Hi André,

good to hear that you got the issue solved.

well, what do you expect Tomcat (or Java) to do here?
The Java-Runtime throws an exception that writing is not possible and
delegates the exception to Tomcat.
What should Tomcat do without the appropriate information?
The only solution would be to enhance the Java Runtime to give a more
talkative Exception, however, that's a Java - not a Tomcat-issue.


just because your paranoid, doesn't mean they're not after you...
