    Description

      Some failed compilations yield ugly error messages:

      org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed, CommandLine.groovy: 2: Unexpected node type: DYNAMIC_MEMBER found when expecting type: an identifier at line: 2 column: 6. File: CommandLine.groovy @ line 2, column 6.
      1 Error

      The line information is written 3 times, the cryptic "startup failed" doesn't really mean anything useful.
      Instead, we should print a friendlier message like:

      Compilation failed: CommandLine.groovy: Unexpected node type: DYNAMIC_MEMBER found when expecting type: an identifier
      File: CommandLine.groovy @ line 2, column 6.
      1 error
