Problems with jsps in tomcat 5.0.25

I have never had problems with tomcat in the past.
However, I get errors whenever I try to execute even the simplest jsp pages, pages with only html code in them. I recently put such a file in the webapps/ROOT directory and got the following results when I tried to access it:
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

An error occurred at line: -1 in the jsp file: null

Generated servlet error:
[javac] Compiling 1 source file
[javac] /usr/local/tomcat/work/Catalina/localhost/_/org/apache/jsp/ handlePageException(java.lang.Exception) in javax.servlet.jsp.PageContext cannot be applied to (java.lang.Throwable)
[javac] if (_jspx_page_context != null) _jspx_page_context.handlePageException(t);
[javac] ^
[javac] 1 error

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, please help.
