Sounds like something going wrong with one of the Rev script libraries 
included in the build.  It may be that the messages are locked at an 
inappropriate time, or that the libs aren't being loaded properly or 
some other initialization is stopping mid-stream during the opening 

Can you build without any additional libraries and get the same result?
Can you test with v2.5 to see if this is an old issue?
