Hmm... two versions of Java present: 6 Update 27 and 6 Update 45

Uninstalled both, went to java.com, and it installed 6 Update 51.
Reinstalled Vassal 3.2.11, and it seems to work now.

Now, I hadn't fiddled with Java on my machine. (I think the second copy
is from Vassal 3.1.20 installing.) So, I would *think* that it was still
the original configuration from Microsoft when they put together the
