A couple of suggestions:

1. Drop the CLASSPATH from bashrc.  It'll cause all sorts of weird 
problems.  Plus the jars you added are automatically added by tomcat's 
own internal classloader.  No need to explicitly declare them anyway.

2. Check you logs for what happened during startup up to the moment of 
your request.  That should help a lot in determining what happened.
