Description David Bennett 2006-02-17 15:19:13 EST
Description of problem:

On a Tomcat web application running on the IBM JVM, the JVM crashes with 
SIGSEGV occasionally when an Exception is thrown by a Servlet or JSP for to 
the application server for processing.  

Dump file reports:

1HPSIGRECV     SIGSEGV received in ?? at 0xffffffff in ??. Processing 
1HPFULLVERSION J2RE 1.4.2 IBM build cxia32142-20050609

It appears as though the instruction pointer (EIP) is being corrupted:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

  IBM JVM cxia32142-20050609 

How reproducible:

This has occured when processing a NullPointerException and also an 
IOException due to a directory permission problem.

Other environments running the same application under heavier load do not 
exhibit the problem.

Additional info:
  See javacores attached.
