My advice: put it back like it was when "everything worked fine" :-), 
turn around and walk away.  "Cleaning up" the jar repository really 
sounds like 'gold plating' to me... it's just not something anyone 
looks at often enough to bother with.  Just my $.02 :-)

I've read some other posts where people were having trouble w/ 
extra-classpath, where it seemed to be being ignored.  If you really 
want to run this down, I suggest setting your core debug level to 
DEBUG.  The code that deals with this produces a fair amount of debug 
messages, so that might help you figure out if you're doing something 
wrong, or to file a decent bug report (i.e. on Bugzilla — it appears 
nobody has done so).

Good luck,
