Eclipse gives JVMTI error

I have Eclipse, Java 5.0 and Tomcat on my system. I used to be able to debug my webapp from Eclipse using the sysdeo plugin. However, recently, it is giving me the following error

"FATAL ERROR in native method: JDWP NewGlobalRef, jvmtiError=JVMTI_ERROR_NULL_POINTER(100)
JDWP exit error JVMTI_ERROR_NULL_POINTER(100): NewGlobalRef"

and Tomcat shuts down. It always happens but it happens at random times while the webapp initializes. If I run Tomcat outside of Eclipse, it's fine. But, I can't debug!!

I know JVMTI is the debugging interface that Eclipse uses to debug tomcat. Question is how do I fix this problem?
I agree. Here's the link:
