Java 7 Update 11 patch with Apache Tomcat 6.0.36 breaks web app on IE8 browser

Hello,

I run web apps on Apache Tomcat 6.0.36 and use IE8 for a web browser with Windows 7 .  I have recently applied the Java zero day patch (Java 7 Update 11).

Now all of my web applications get a  white screen with the message 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage' Here is the error message I get from my catalina log file.

Jan 18, 2013 3:44:55 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start
INFO: Server startup in 38198 ms
Jan 18, 2013 3:51:17 PM org.apache.tomcat.util.net.NioEndpoint setSocketOptions

      at org.apache.tomcat.util.net.NioEndpoint$Acceptor.run(NioEndpoint.java:1314)
      at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

Any ideas on how to fix this are greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I found this was a known issue, but the fix was documented in Jul 2012.  I would have assumed it would have been included.  This post:
