I'm not sure which version of Forrest is giving you this error. I know 
you have SVN head so lets work with that (we are actually in a code 
freeze and testing the release package right now, so you may as well 
stick with it).

So, lets start from the beginning again. Do the following:

set FORREST_HOME=path/to/forrest-0.8/checkout
cd %FORREST_HOME%\main
build.bat clean

cd some/temp/dir
forrest seed-samples

All I know for certain is that this is an issue with your environment, 
not with Forrest itself. I know that Forrest runs perfectly well on 
windows with:

java version " 1.5.0_11"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_11-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_11-b03, mixed mode, sharing)

(I have the exact same setup locally on Windows XP Pro)

Forrest will give you more clues as to where the problem occurs in its 
logs. These can be found in build/webapp/logs within your content object
