Yea, this definitely sounds like a Weblogic bug. Putting rhino.jar first in the weblogic classpath
moves me to the next error. I have seen similar things in the past, so I guess I should have
checked. It seems like rhino is only used by workshop, though, which I'm not using. So basically
my options are: 
1)Remove the rhino classes from weblogic.jar
2)Use ParanoidCocoonServlet, and do all the necessary weeding in the libs to get rid of all
the classcastexceptions. 
3) Use something other than weblogic

At the moment I'm leaning towards 3 ;-)
