Postmaster not dropping connections on tomcat restart.

Dear List,

I've finally managed to get connection pooling going in tomcat.  I've 
noticed that when i reload my web app the postmaster will not drop any 
of the connections.

Basically the order of things is I start Tomcat, check out my servlet 
and there's a connection that shows up to the postmaster.  Now while 
I've been doing some development I notice that when i reload my web app 
that the connection stays around.  And after enough connections are 
just sitting there, it doesn't allow me to make anymore.  It gives a 
JDBC error about not being able to make any more connections without 
superuser status.

I'm not even sure if this would be a problem in production, but right 
now I'm finding it quite annoying to have to restart tomcat on a 
regular basis.

Before I get flamed, I just want to note that I'm only asking here 
because I don't even know if this is a postgresql problem or a tomcat 
one.  So I'm asking on both mailing lists.

Paul Davis.
