Endless Tomcat processes starting and stopping for Synchrony, using ALL CPU

I'm developing plugins and have my own local Confluence Server v6.6.3 running, but maybe this is still relevant to non-developers...

 

I started Confluence with atlas-debug as usual and there are two Java Tomcat processes constantly starting and stopping and is using ALL of my CPU on all cores.  There are 2 Tomcat Java processes that startup and then get killed about 30 seconds later and then restarting.  Running on Windows 7.

 

There are only INFO level logs during each time it starts:

So, I went to the Collaborative Editing and saw that it was OFF.  So, why all this endless startup/stops?  Something I need to fix?  I decided to turn Collaborative edit ON in the hopes to turn it back off to see if this stops and now the spinner just spins endlessly.

 

Please help

Well, I guess I have to kill it some other way.  I found this:

 

/rest/synchrony-interop/disable

 

but it doesn't work via the browser address bar.  You have to execute it via the REST Browser.
