Not quite sure what key you have for me there, as I can't SSH with those
credentials from two plausible candidates.  I'll send you a copy of my
<mevenson at> public key under separate cover that you can update
for me when you get a chance, ok?

I have replicated this error with the following


The error stems from a failure to use Maven to download the JNA binary
artifact "" which ABCL uses to shim the
dynamic linking necessary CFFI to run.  I am not sure if this is a
generic problem with openjdk-6 using Maven, or the particular Maven
installations that our machine happen to have.  When I get a chance,
I'll do some more investigation on my failing instance, and when I get
access to ``, I'll try to debug why Maven
is failing for you.  If necessary, we will release an abcl-1.4.1 to fix
the situation.

Thanks again for the fantastic resource that is CL-TEST-GRID!
