I'm afraid I am as confused as you. As you say facts are facts and the 
branch is working for Clay and myself, yet it is not working for you. 
I'd like to be sure that it is not the code.

If you can tell me what is in your logs when you get the fail this will 
help a great deal (logs are in buils/webapp/WEB-INF/logs/ when you do a 
forrest run).

In the meantime, I'm testing the merge operation.
