Hello,

Please review this small fix which updates XMLDSigWithSecMgr.java test 
to extend the default security policy instead of override. Please see 
details here:

The test could use "@run main/othervm/java.security.policy" action, but 
sometimes it may be better to enable a security manager during test 
execution to avoid granting many additional permissions if a test 
requires some setup. I tried to set "java.security.policy" system 
property just before enabling a security manager, and it seems to work fine.
