Error starting modern compiler

we recently upgraded our Bamboo to "version 3.4.3 build 2811". We have several build jobs that are using JDK 1.6_13. One of them is now giving the error "Error starting modern compliler". It is identical (other than where it checked out code from) to several other builds that are working fine. Any direction you can provide would be very helpful at this point.

The build in question DID work for a while on the new version, by the way. I don't think the upgrade CAUSED the problem, but we are unable to diagnose this issue any further at this point.

Is it a local agent? I think what happens is there's a mismatch between the version of javac binary and the version of JDK jars reachable via JAVA_HOME. If you're on Linux, you can check the versions by adding a script task that does the following:

javac -version


Also, you should probably make sure you don't specify the wrong classpath when invoking javac.
