Tracking down an NPE

Cool, thanks - so the native packager requires that every one of the JARs
used in the app (even the third party ones not built as part of the app)
have a manifest in them? That's going to be very nasty.

Regarding getting the javafx-ant jars into a repo, I started down this road
a while back and have now access to the OSS repo for groupID

I gave up actually deploying it when I realised there was a different
javafx-ant.jar for each native platform. I wasn't able to build them all
(and the Windows build was patchy at best anyway).

Happy to work with you on getting them into that repo if you want. Just let
me know where you're up to with it and what you need.
