This is not a proxy error at all.  This is caused when calling  
FastClass.invoke which is a faster version of reflection.  IIRC this  
error normally means that the calling code does not have access to  
the target method.  FWIU, regardless of using reflection or generated  
byte code, the VM will prevent a caller from accessing a method it  
would not normally have access to via normal Java code.  If the  
method is private and you attempt to use reflection to invoke it, the  
VM will throw an IllegalAccessError.  This enforcement code gets  
weird when you attempt to call across class loaders.

Anyway, lets start with the basics.  Can you post the  
ceBean.ejbRemove () code?

BTW, I rewrote this code in OpenEJB head to use plain old reflection  
(long story), so it shouldn't appear there.  I am curious if you can  
reproduce the problem using reflection.  Regardless, this is a  
problem we need to fix, since we use AbstractMethodOperation all over.
