There are no errors in the roller.log file.  The only warning is this:

WARN  2008-02-14 09:18:08,487 Settings:getLocale - Settings: Could not 
parse struts.locale setting, substituting default VM locale

As I said, my java knowledge is thin so I'm not sure what that means, 
but I was getting that warning long before I tried adding editors.
