Something similar just happened to me a few minutes ago and it looks
like I didn't wait for the app to fully-deploy. I wasn't getting 404s,
though: I was getting long wait times for ultimately blank responses.

or entropy-collection delays when starting-up.

Can you paste the whole catalina.out you have after you launch Tomcat?
