Ubuntu? Is this a real tomcat, or that broken Debian package?
Try downloading a normal Tomcat and see if that fixes the problem. If it does, talk to the packager about what he changed to make this not work for you.
I don't know anything about a specific Ubuntu Tomcat packaging, but Tomcat won't shut down as long as any of the threads of any of the applications under Tomcat are still running.
While you should never spawn threads in servlets*, JSPs, or EJBs (or in code called by them), it is sometimes useful to spawn offline processor threads - *which can be safely in in a servlet's init() method - and otherwise use thread-spawning facilities such as Quartz.
If you do spawn threads in a webapp, you must terminate them when a Tomcat shutdown is initiated or Tomcat will hang.
The problem with accessing apps from other machines is probably just the standard firewall problem.
