Ok, I'll see if I can reproduce on another machine and dig into it.

Great! SWT and JFace experience is definitely something we could  
use.  So one of the big things we need coverage on is providing Form  
Page editors for our deployment plans.  Currently if you double click  
for example on the geronimo-web.xml it will open up a form editor.   
You will see that the coverage is currently very minimal and due to  
my lack of UI creativity many of the tables and such look exactly the  
same. :)  The wizards are also very primative and we desperately need  
to enhance these.  So if you're interested this would be a great  
place to contribute.  This would also help you get a good  
understanding of each of the geronimo deployment plans.
