java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot create a session after the response has been committed

Hi,

First of all, I'm using Tomcat 6.0.29 (the latest as of September 2010), Struts and other technologies not relevant here.

My website runs fine 99% of the time, but several times per day I get an error in my Tomcat Log, so it is an sporadic issue. I don't know the reason. My code is separated in model/view/controller, given that I'm using Struts, so my code has been correctly separated in layers. This error happens in several JSP pages.
As far as I can understand, Tomcat generates a Java class (a servlet) for every JSP (well, everybody know that I guess). When my problem arrises, an exception is being thrown when the corresponding generated servlet tries to run the "_jspService()" method that uses a lot of "out.write()" methods to send the output to the response. An exception is being thrown for some reason, and then my log gets the error trace.
Anybody knows what is going on?


This is the error in the log:
