I committed a fix for the problem that is along those lines, along with 
some minor refactorings to this code. Please check out the new version 
(1.7.74) and check that this fixes the issue.

That is good to hear. Avrora 1.7.x should also work then; the Java 1.5 
stuff is only necessary to the jintgen module--i.e. "make avrora" should 
only compile the Avrora source, which is all 1.4 compatible.

No one really appears to be using the GUI functionality, and it probably 
isn't worth maintaining. There are some excellent visualization and 
graphing tools out there anyway, and Avrora could probably just hook up as 
a backend to those.
