tomcat 4 and connection pool

I already posted a similar question but I got no answer so far so I try again...
I have an application using connection pooling to Oracle, it works fine on Tomcat 3 but on Tomcat 4 the number of active connections grows to a point when I have to kill them. The strange thing is it doesn't grow continously but it can stop on a certain number of active connections for a while and then increase. It's not a matter of closing the connections since I checked and all are closed and exactly the same application runs fine on v.3. Since I open the connection use it and then close it immediately I normally get 1 or 0 active connections on v.3 but on v.4 it goes up's like Tomcat is somehow interfering with Oracle's connection pooling. Anybody can help?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
