Tocat 5 startup.sh crashes console, no error messages
java: 1.4 j2sdk1.4.2_04
jakarta-tomcat-5.0.27, JAVA_HOME is set up correctly.

I've tried (successfully) installing tomcat binaries and (successfully) building tomcat from source. In both cases the same thing happens, when, in a console, I type (from the tomcat/bin directory)
then the script runs then fails. The console window the script runs in then crashes (closes) in the processes, exasperatingly. No error messages. I piped the output into a log file and got this:
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/local/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/local/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/tomcat/temp
Using JAVA_HOME: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_04
Other java stuff, like Eclipse 3 that I've just installed, work fine. That's all I have to go on. Can anyone give me a clue on how to solve the tomcat problem?
