Linux vm_172_23_10_8 2.6.31-17-server
java version "1.6.0_15"

I'm running tcServer in a cluster on top of VMware ESXi server. When I try and start tcServer (or plain Tomcat 6, for that matter) with a webapp that is Spring Security 3 enabled, it takes 5 minutes or more for the server to fully start. When I symlink /dev/random to /dev/urandom, it starts up normally.
I have /dev/urandom set as the source for my entropy in the system java.security settings. I've also passed -Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/urandom to tcServer per the thread: http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do;jsessionid=81ead47d172a98bb75bbdf7fc78?bug_id=4705093
I don't really know what else to try. Every time I reboot, any changes I make to /dev/random revert to the stock, blocking random generator. When I comment out Spring Security, everything start fine.
