Problem solved!

I am quite embarrassed because I've had this problem before, solved it
(with the help of this list), and documented it.  Here are my notes:

tomcat slow startup

The secure random calls may be blocking as there is not enough entropy to
feed them in /dev/random.

Change /etc/java-8-openjdk/security/

From:  securerandom.source=file:/dev/random

To:  securerandom.source=file:/dev/urandom
