Hi Martin,

StringReader input = new StringReader("xitem foo");

is the culprit.  It should be "item foo".  It sees xitem as STRING  
and then matches nothing, which is legal by your grammar:

catalog :  item*;

it silently exists because it didn't find an item. ;)

If you use

catalog :  item* EOF;

then it would say missing EOF, found STRING or something.
