Cannot parse persistent.xml storage.xml... null pointer exception



i have an EAR with a WAR and an EJB jar. i only have session beans. no entity beans. my EJB jar does not have a persistent.xml or storage.xml. i build my EAR using ant and deploy using visual administrator (thanks to Vladimir Pavlov). i get this huge stack that says

" Cannot parse persistent.xml or storage.xml for JAR F:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\j2ee\admin\.\temp\deploying\deploy_temp\reader1115328611113\tap-ejb.jar.

Reason: java.lang.NullPointerException."

i get this only when i have <security-permission> in the ejb-j2ee-engine.xml. does this tag need one of these files. the application deploys just fine if i dont have the <security-permission>. i need to map the users to the roles in the application for EJBs.

can someone please tell me what is happening here.
