For me these two cases seem to be one in the same.  At the end of a
connection thread, I need to do both JavaCacheCleanup and

I think what you're saying is correct.  I've always thought of it as
aolserver starting a connection thread and allocating a tcl
interpreter instance to run in that thread.  The jvm attach is done at
the start of the thread by a registered proc, and after the jvm is
attached to the connection thread, tclblend is initialized.

I would be happy to see it called at the end of a thread, because I
don't exit the jvm until aolserver is shutdown.
