Short version: Andre and I identified the bug with help from David and Jason on AS7.1
team. They will do a new respin of AS 7.1.b1 ASAP.
Details are at https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBIDE-10293
Rob - please check my commits and the fixes I did and if beta1b comes available we need
to update the client jars instead of the snapshots.
