Without L104, array is empty, and L108 and L112 fill zeros into buffers.

I also just noticed that the dummy class loaders are only used in 
samevm. When running as othervm or standalone, findClass() method is 
never called.

It seems in othervm mode, the TestClass.class is in the same directory 
as the main class and it's loaded directly by the URLClassLoader (?).

I've updated the code changes to first rename the compiled file, so that 
the URLClassLoader will be find it. The new test runs OK for both samevm 
and othervm. I've even added a counter to make sure dummy class loader 
get used.

JPRT also OK at --
