The first core that I saw was in $CATALINA_HOME/bin as expected.  The next 
crash produced one at root.  I thought this might have been because there is 
a cron process that runs a shell script in the /usr/local/tomcat_wars 
directory that restarts Tomcat (using and in the 
$CATALINA_HOME/bin directory) at 1:00AM so I just never paid it much 

Red herrings, green herrings, blue herrings... who knows anymore?
