Sorry for the confusion, David.  Responses inline.

Geronimo trunk has moved from a dependency on mina 1.1.2 to a dependency on
mina 1.1.5.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking with this but I'll try to answer
anyways.  The version of gshell that is used in trunk currently is
1.0-alpha-1.  The gsh-classworlds.conf file for this version of gshell is
looking for mina 1.1.2.  Geronimo no longer has a dependency on mina 1.1.2.
It is now dependent on mina 1.1.5.  Because of this, Plexus (which attempts
to load the classes specified in gsh-classworlds.conf) crashes on load.

GShell trunk has recently been updated to mina-1.1.6

Halfway through my responses, I just realized that I'm probably blowing the
problem way out of proportion.  I misunderstood how gshell was assembled in
the server, but I think I understand it now.  At least, I understand it well
enough to point out that this can actually be fixed easily by updating the
gsh-classworlds.conf file in
assemblies/geronimo-boilerplate-minimal/src/main/underlay/etc/ to use
mina-1.1.5.  I can see now why you were so confused, David.  Sorry about
