JBoss server not starting after alfresco.war copied

I have a problem on Fedora Core 4 with JDK 1.5.0_10 and JBoss 4.0.5. I have 2 application running in the /server/default configuration that are working without any problems so I can vouch for the server.  If I start the server with the alfresco war in /server/default/deploy nothing works

What I did is:
a) downloaded the community 1.4 war tgz (alfresco-community-war-1.4.0.tar.gz)
b) stopped Jboss
c) untarred the tgz and copied the alfresco.war to /server/default/deploy (where th other applications are)
d) donloaded the Mysql jdbc driver (mysql-connector-java-5.0.4.tar.gz)
e) copied the driver jar to /server/default/lib (where I already have the Oracle jdbc)
f) created the alfresco user in MySql using the db_setup.sql script
g) restarted Jboss

What happens is that when the alfresco.war gets deployed, the java process starts taking up 99.9% of cpu time and the server.log file grows by anout 1 gb per minute (many, many DEBUG messages). I found out about this because the first time I ran out of disk space on that volume after 10 minutes. Unfortunately the server log does not show anything obviously wrong and beiing so big is pretty hard to work with anyway. I shut down Jboss and manually kill the java process.

I thought of directing server.log to /dev/null to avoid the disk problem to see if it will eventually start but it seems that 10 minutes is too long to start Alfresco. So something else must be wrong with my configuration.

I loged into MySql with the alfresco login and saw that the tables were created.

Has anybody had this type of problem? Any suggestions?

Thanks.
