Hm... that's surprising. I believe the testing machine where the test 
was developed had some very permissive default security policy, and as 
such the problem hasn't been caught.

OK, then the test really needs some change, and the proposed fix looks 
good to me.

PS. Although if the enhanced security warning is backported to OpenJDK6, 
the test and the fix seem useless. And it's already useless in JDK7.
