OK, that makes sense. I'll avoid RuntimeException subclasses.

But I get the same error if I just add Exception to my method
signatures -- xrpcc reports 'java.lang.Exception not supported'.

Any ideas? I've been working with the EA1 release, but just
updated to EA2 to see if it would help with this and other
problems I'm having. Doesn't seem to affect this one (haven't
yet tried the others).
