Looks like more failures with xml-security.

As an aside, I've found that even the beta JDK1.5 provider may not 
support everything we need, and 1.4 definitely doesn't.

The current failure is around trying to download the BC JCE, so I have 
reversed out the change around the JDK1.4 JCE to re-enable the BC JCE.

Not sure what the correct protocol is, so apologies if I am stepping on
