Those versions have been votes as broken and not released.

a) You may try debugging:

You could get stack trace and function arguments (such as file name).

b) You may use zip archiver (or jar archiver from JDK) to unpack their
manifest files and read through them.

c) JDK 7u67 source code for java.util.jar.Attributes contains
                if ((putValue(name, value) != null) && (!lineContinued)) {
                                     "Duplicate name in Manifest: " + name
                                     + ".\n"
                                     + "Ensure that the manifest does not "
                                     + "have duplicate entries, and\n"
                                     + "that blank lines separate "
                                     + "individual sections in both your\n"
                                     + "manifest and in the
                                     + "entry in the jar file.");

None of Tomcat jars have "Depends-On" entry in their manifests.

Such an entry is surely not the first one in the file (the first one
should be Manifest-Version), so it is unlikely that the manifest file
is being read twice.
