This is a known bug, but I don't have access to a Mac so it isn't easy 
for me to test, or work out what is causing it.
config.xml should be in the resources directory, and from previous 
queries I think it is. It is being accessed via the classpath so there 
is obviously some problem setting that up under macosx.
How were you running jsword? Did you get an icon to click on? and can 
you tell what that does?
There is a startup script in jsword/bin/jsword.sh which should set the 
classpath correctly, maybe that is worth a try.

With the error message is there a details checkbox? and if so can you 
tell me what the first line of the exception is?
And do you have access to any sort of startup log? We currently print 
quite a lot of stuff to the console as we start up, if you could cut and 
paste that into an email it might help.

There may be a lot of things to try there, and not all of them may work 
or be easy, but any extra info you can give me will help.
