As another flash, another utility that may be of help here is "lsof".
Just the list of options is scary and it takes an engineering degree to 
handle, but the least it can do is show you which sockets, files and 
such things are used by what.
As a command-line tool, it is easy to write a small shell script with a 
loop calling lsof every 15 seconds e.g., dumping the result to a file 
which you could examine when your Tomcat goes boom.
