There seem to be quite a few of us that have just this problem (even, dare i suggest it, some madams ;). From what i 
can tell, it comes from problems with the makefile, not having the right things on the CLASSPATH etc.

One of the writers (sorry, i can't remember your name) to this list provided a makefile to fix just this problem (look 
at the archives for this month, under www.w3c.org/jigsaw somewhere). The makefile didn't work completely perfectly for 
me (system differences i assume), but after manually making a couple of extra changes (as per the manual), i finally 
got it working.

What i would like to suggest is that given that so many of us wish to have servlet support, and have so much trouble 
getting it, wouldn't it make sense to make the updated version of jigsaw.zip publically available? I would do it with 
my version (and will, if so requested), except that i am worried that it isn't perfect (though i haven't had any 
troubles since), and also i am quite far away from the main internet backbones...
