Right, there is an additional frame that means that getClassClass is out 
by one. This change was unintentional (meaning a bug) and Mandy has a 
fix coming in 7u40 for this, the discussion has been on jdk7u-dev rather 
than here:


As regards getting people off sun.reflect.Reflection.getCallerClass(int) 
then the proposal is aggressive, you can read the details but it 
essentially means it will be disabled by default in 7u40.
