Where did you download the source from? Official place to get it is:
(I'd also recommend that you use version 1.01 instead, although off the
top of my head I can't think of any 1.00 -> 1.01 changes which are
likely to be significant in this case).
What errors did you see when compiling? And what changes did you make
to get it to compile?
It would also be helpful to know some details about your system
configuration. What operating system are you using? Which release of
Java (if you're not sure, try "java -version").

That's an extremely strange error to see, since if there *were* an
illegal access of that field, it should be caught at compile time, not
runtime. If I had to guess, I'd say that this was the result of using
a Java compiler which doesn't handle nested classes (sometimes called
inner classes) quite right.
Which compiler are you using?
