Maybe I missed it, but you still haven't clarified what you mean by
tomcat stops.

Does Tomcat do an orderly shutdown?
Does Tomcat appear to freeze (stop answering new requests)
Does the JVM hosting Tomcat crash?

Assuming you have a JVM crash issue here... you should try other JVMs
(32 bit, and/or other versions).
You should try different JVM switches.
And you should find the JVM crash log file - you should have one somewhere.

You can use these options on your JVM in your tomcat start sequence to
control where the JVM crash log will be written (And to force one for
an out of memory error)
