One hour!!! That's ridiculous.
Way I look at things, you got these options
1) Reinstall the existing service. The upgrade might have messed up something
2) If that doesn't work, try using it as a non service and observe what happens
3) If that doesn't work, consider moving to [url=http://www.ubuntu.com/]Ubuntu[url]

Can you copy paste the log for the console?
Also, how are you checking if Tomcat is up? http://localhost:8080 ?

If this was my problem I would remove all applications but a simple index.html at ROOT - if THAT is slow to boot something is very wrong.

If that is fast, add back applications one at a time.

I've never actually seen a damaged Tomcat take long periods of time to start. They generally simply fail, instead.

On the other hand, some yokel handed me a webapp that essentially uploaded an entire database into RAM at startup time. That one took over half an hour per restart.

I fixed the app. Changed the way it fetched data and dropped the startup time for server plus app to 23 seconds.
