Probably.  I didn't think about this when doing errors previously when 
under the gun during the startup.  Sorry.

[I have fixed this in 3.0.  Only the exception is thrown with relevant 
info; no text at all.  The reporting facilities are required to decode 
and print as human text.  Further, all antlr error messages themselves 
are contained in string template files and ANTLR checks the locale to 
pull in the right messages.] :)
