Why is my logging output getting swallowed running tasks?

When I run "mvn compiler:testCompile" at a command line for my project, I see errors:

C:\...>mvn compiler:testCompile

[INFO] Scanning for projects...

...

[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------

[INFO] Building Personal Experience Portal

[INFO] task-segment: [compiler:testCompile]

[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------

[INFO] [compiler:testCompile {execution: default-cli}]

[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------

[INFO] Compilation failure

C:\....\VacationContainer.java:[540,15] cannot find symbol

symbol : variable LINK_LOCATOR

location: class page.helper....VacationContainer

However, when I do the same thing as a Maven task in a stage, I get no logging output ...

I also tried a <javac> from within an Ant task, and I get the same problem ... I only see "Failing task since return code was -1 while expected 0"

What result do you get if you export all these variables and run the same command line that Bamboo does?

This widget could not be displayed.

the -1 would seem to mean that the command itself was unable to execute ... in this case because the directory path to the pom.xml was wrong
