Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: tomcat6

Tomcat 6 currently implements the TearDown spec [1] which provides
faster shutdown by avoiding the init script to be called at system
shutdown or reboot, and instead rely on the processes being correctly
terminated and killed by the sendsigs script.

However, one might implement LifecycleListener callbacks in webapps that
result in specific code being executed when Contexts are destroyed, and
TearDown would bypass that feature. Therefore it would be preferable not
to implement TearDown for Tomcat 6.
