It seems there is a bug in WAS that was introduced with 6.1.0.3. I found this forum post on the subject.

Spring for Plain old Java Applications (POJAs)

Most J2EE developers have at least heard of the Spring framework and know that it is an excellent framework for creating enterprise applications. I have recently needed to create an application that runs from the command line and is short lived. It has no GUI but I wanted it to be configurable and extendable in various ways. To that end, I defined a bunch of interfaces for the objects in the system to use when interfacing with other objects. Then I started thinking about the implementations of these interfaces and the factory classes I would need to create. I said to myself “Self, doesn’t Spring already do this?” and I answered myself, “Why, yes”. So I decided to try it.
