Startup problems with tomcat5.5

I've got a strange problem with the tomcat5.5 package.
After installing tomcat5.5 and sun-java5-jdk on Feisty, I can run
sudo /etc/init.d/tomcat5.5 start
However, Tomcat actually does not really start and does not open a port,
although it can be seen in the process list.
I need to do
sudo less /var/log/tomcat5.5/catalina.out
The second I do that, Tomcat starts up.
Note that catalina.out it not a "regular file"; it has got the "p" flag.
What does it mean?
Is this strange behaviour expected? Is it a bug?
