saying which address a bind was attempted for would accelerate the error resolution quite a bit!

This has been fixed in trunk and proposed for 6.0.x
Comment 2 Mark Thomas 2008-03-19 16:16:03 UTC
This is fixed in 6.0.x and will be in 6.0.17 omwards.
Comment 3 Ralf Hauser 2008-10-15 05:50:50 UTC
this is particularly important, since e.g. today's debian stable kernel upgrade failed to re-deploy secondary network addresses from my

 /etc/network/interfaces file

after re-boot.
Only a manual 

   sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

fixed this.

Hard to detect unless tomcat tells you that despite you configuring it tries to bind to anyway...  :(
