O, good example why it would be good to change this.

Note, that I already agree we should change to use the context
classloader (and the application classloader as backup if loading
through the context classloader fails and it isn't the same as the
application classloader). I just didn't make time to implement it.

Please post a patch to classpath-patches if you have one.
(Don't forget to update the documentation.)
