You won't see those warnings if you start Tomcat with the standard scripts.

Not at the moment.

We'll keep the explicit clearing in place as long as we can. Once it is
permanently blocked we'll probably have to rely on the fact that the
Maps in question use a WeakReference and wait for GC to clear the
references. That will make tracking down genuine memory leaks harder so
we'll have to see if we can persuade the JRE team to provide some sort
of replacement API if/when we reach that point.
