you get this issue with latest 0.9.2 release - when using latest
openjdk on redhat/centos etc  (same problem with 0.8.0 but as you say,
thats ancient history now).  have contacted the author and
have started to update the WIKI - the issue seems to be same historic
JAVA 8 problem with SPRING.  have tried with Java 7 - same issue.
looking to see if 0.9.0 works with J7...
