It's not clear to me that this is the right place to address this issue. 
Clearly the changes to JRELocaleProviderAdapter to use ServiceLoader 
have upset the ordering that things are initialized for this error case, 
but it looks to me that it's always been very fragile. I think we need 
stack back a bit and examine the stack trace to see where might be a 
more appropriate place to address this, it may be that the security code 
needs to be more tolerant of attempts at recursive initialization.
