It looks like you might have encountered a more serious problem with our 
classloader.  Can you mail me a copy of the failing jar file?

You might try recompiling all the FASLs if you have upgraded the 
'abcl.jar' you use recently, but this probably won't help.

When I get the time, I'll try to examine your failure, synthesize a 
failing test, and we'll see from there.  Finding the time will probably 
happen over the next couple days
