Occasionally Alfresco "crashes" (it responds but when logging in to share you will usually get a java runtime error) and the catalina.out file displays the following error many times. Is this a memory related issue in the tomcat server or something operating system specific? Anyone know? A restart of the tomcat server fixes it.
