it's a fair point @ecki -- the 2nd `loadedProps = true;` call is redundant since the code block is not executed unless the `security.overridePropertiesFile` is set to true by reading the props from default/master file.

one option here might be to delay the re-initialization of `props` until we successfully load the override security props file

i.e. push this code block down 

            if (overrideAll) {
                props = new Properties();
                if (sdebug != null) {
                        ("overriding other security properties files!");

I'll log another JBS issue to track that.
