It doesn't match any known bugs I am familiar with.

My best guess is that something is retaining a reference to an async
object longer than is should. Tomcat recycles that object to re-use it
and then you get a conflict between the new and old users of that object.

Enabling debug level logging for protocol might shed some light.

Something to consider (as a change in Tomcat) would be using a facade
around the SocketWrapper so that when the SocketWrapper is recycled it
can be nulled out in the facade. Given the increasing use of async and
non-blocking this could be something that would be generally useful.
