I am not using tomcat on Fedora but it occurs to me after reading your
bug report...

try /sbin/service tomcat5 stop

and then after service is stopped, see if any tomcat processes remain
and see if anything is still using port 8080

ps aux|grep tomcat


netstat -an|grep 8080

It appears from the snippet of the catalina.out logs that something was
still running on port 8080 when you started it up.
