As far as I know, these startup scripts are created by the packagers of Debian, RedHat 
etc.. when they wrap Tomcat in a platform-specific package.
/They/ are the ones who decide how they call up jsvc, where the logfiles go, under what 
permissions etc..

There is no trace of jsvc in my (catalina_home)/bin/*.sh files.

And in general, these packaged Tomcats do not use these .sh scripts anyway, everything 
happens in /etc/init.d/tomcat...

So maybe you should discuss this issue with the packagers for Debian, RedHat etc..
