Perhaps this is stating the obvious, but on the off chance it is useful, here goes...

I am consistently getting this failure in new4:
     [echo] Running car:install for Geronimo Configuration for performing service deployments

File...... C:\home\apache\geronimo\maven.xml
Element... maven:reactor
Line...... 58
Column.... 112
Unable to obtain goal [multiproject:install-callback] -- C:\Documents and 
Settings\Administrator\.maven\cache\maven-multiproject-plugin-1.4.1\plugin.jelly:256:30: <attainGoal>
No goal 
Total time: 9 seconds

Goal [car:install] is implemented by the geronimo-packaging-plugin.

After my build fails, I check the maven cache and I only see the following two plugins:

dir c:/Documents and Settings/Administrator/.maven/cache/


No packaging plugin.  Do you think the plugin was removed from the cache or did it not get
put in the cache in 
the first place?

Going to try an experiment... run sysinternals filemon watching for file 
geronimo-packaging-plugin-1.0-SNAPSHOT, kick off a build and watch what happens. If the file
is never created, 
that will be a useful clue.
