The GC.Daemon thread has no need of any user defined class loader,
so should set its context class loader to null before starting, so as to
not inadvertently retain a reference to the creating thread’s context
class loader.



P.S. I added a detailed comment the JIRA issue, for those wondering
why Tomcat is running into this.
