    If context root service tracing (com.ibm.bpm.crconfig.*=all)
    is enabled and enterprise applications that contain web
    modules are started or stopped, a race condition occurs when
    the context root cache is accessed. This race condition might
    cause intermittent java.util.ConcurrentModificationExceptions.
