nullpointer when restarting webmodule with soap

I've the following issue:

Deployed an EAR with several WAR files in a WSAD testenvironment
WSAD 5.0.1 and testenvironment is WAS version4.
One of the webapplications contains a SOAP application. The application is created with the SOAP wizard of WSAD (RPC/Encoded).
The application works fine, it can be reached by a Delphi client that is generated with help of the created WSDL. However when i try to restart the application it fails.
so:
Stopping and starting the server, no problem
Restarting the EAR, fails
Restarting the other WAR files, no problem
Restarting the specific WAR file, fails.

There is another WAR file, also with a SOAP layer that is created by hand, this one does not fails at a restart. I've checked both the classpath's, manifest file, web.xml, dds.xml, the websphere specific deployement files. But there i could not find any differences.

some lines of the console:

Does anyone knows this problem (and a solution or cause, i hope!)?
I post this question earlier in the Web Services edge but it probably has no cause related with the web service aspect of the application. I overlooked this IBM/Websphere forum earlier so i repost it here.

thanks, in advance
