Just uncheck the box in the JUnit test gui that has to do with test reloading. 
It uses it's own class loader (though I can't recall the exact reason) a
failure occurs because of an == call that would normally be true but isn't
because the instances are from a different class loader.  Sorry this is from
memory but I did mention it when I checked in one of the last test suite
