Hmm. Did the error message change? I would have expected a "ERROR [AbstractEncryption] Unable
to decrypt" message instead of a NoSuchAlgorithmException...

 Whether the path to JAVA_HOME was explicitly called out or not, once a bad shell command
to run Geronimo was executed, the installation became corrupt, and no amount of pointing to
the correct JAVA_HOME path would fix it.

Me too.. Anyway -- great that it's working for you, now.
