"Thrown when an incompatible class change has occurred to some class definition. The definition of some class, on which the currently executing method depends, has since changed. "

Errors of this type usually indicate you have recompiled some of your classes, while other classes that are used by those classes have not been recompiled, yet their bytecode is no longer compatible with the newly compiled classes.
Make sure you fully recompile *all* the classes in your project and see if you can get passed the error.
