Using the latest code from git seems to work like a charm now, Sean.

Though I do note that users can't build ECJ without adding the EJML jars to their CLASSPATH (since the 'all' target in the Makefile builds the CMA-ES prototype by default).

Turns out there were *four* bugs preventing the GUI from launching:

        - Makefile: make jar didn't first make gui
        - Makefile: make gui wasn't adding the png images to the jar file
        - ec.display.Console: had incorrect paths for the png resources
        - ec.display.SubpopulationPanel: had a semicolon on an if-test (oops) which prevented pop.default-subpop from being properly tested for

I've committed a new version with bugfixes.  See if this works.

It's clear the GUI is experiencing bit-rot from lack of use.
