I don't think this is a problem, as it is the same message that one 
normally gets when starting up SLIME with ABCL.

I don't get to that error instead when I invoke 
Interpreter.createDefaultInstance() with {"--init", "(require \'asdf)"} 
as parameter, my Protege instance just quits.  I built my Protege from 
the SVN sources on trunk, so maybe I have some other instability. 
Advice on how to create a better build environment or an explanation of 
how you are running Protege here would be welcome.

I suspect this is more of an undiagnosed problem in loading in an OSGi 
context, as I know that *LISP-HOME* is nil, so I think something is 
bombing out in reaction to that in trying to autoload more code.  I 
patched what code I could find to get abcl.jar to load, but we never 
tried to do anything useful with the code, so I am expecting that we are 
running into untested problems with running from an OSGi bundle

Did you get JConsole to work outside of OSGi? That would be my next step 
in investigating this, as the console.getInputStream() call you are 
making to set the Java standard input doesn't seem to be working.  Do 
you have a copy of the source for bsh-2.0b4?  It seems to be unavailable 
from what I can find out.
