I'm afraid I'm yet another guy who tends to use stacktraces and logging 
rather than diving in with a debugger...  but just to check...  you do 
have BioJava build with "Generate debugging symbols" set in the Java 
Compiler settings panel?

If that doesn't help, I agree that adding BioJava to the same project 
is probably the next logical step.  Why isn't that working?
