   The method Class.getClassLoader() is returning null, which is
   causing stuff to bomb out with NullPointerException. Eg:

     class Bar {
       public static void main(String[] args) {
	 Integer x = new Integer(1);
	 System.out.println("Class loader = " + x.getClass().getClassLoader());

     $ kaffe Bar
     Class loader = null

   This is a bug, right? I'm not super familiar with this method.

No. An implementation is allowed to return null for classes
loaded from the so-called "system loader".
