It might be wrong, but it seems to me that starting with 4.4.0 ActionBarSherlock contains some android.support.v4 types which are not public. That conflicts types from android-support-v4.jar and our ActionBarSherlockTest does not build anymore because of the duplicate.

Since ABS should build just fine on Java land, there may be some difference between our use of dx and their use of dx. We need to investigate that.

That did not happen when I tried to build it with the latest zip built by ant. Maybe some old build was insufficient with gradle, or there were stale files, etc...
