Hi Mark,

Thanks for replying. I actually reported this bug to Oracle before contacting this group.
They contacted me once but then never replied again.  I'd appreciate it if you could bring
it to their attention again.

This bug is kind of elusive as a form that is crashing today might not crash tomorrow, I suspect
it is because headers, cookies, session keys etc  have changed. I'll see if I can reproduce
it by creating a testing form.

Can anyone tell me why this line causes the site to not crash?


Igal thanks for your support.

The general position of the Tomcat developers is that we do *not* patch
Tomcat to work around bugs in third party code.

There have been exceptions in the past but - since this JVM bug as a
workaround available - I very much doubt that Tomcat will be patched to
avoid this (even if such a patch was possible which looks unlikely).

A reproducible test case is definitely a good thing but it needs to go
to Oracle, not to the Tomcat devs.

Note we do have some contacts with Oracle we can use to ensure a bug
report gets in front of the right people.
