IcedTeaWeb Started application apparently tries to download classpath resources from server

I have an application that is started using webstart. After the application has started I get logging on my server that says that something is trying to load resources that doesn't exist.

To me it looks like my webstarted application is trying to load classes/resources from the url that is codebase in my jnlp.

For example, it seems like getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("/missing/resource") tries to load from http://my.application/webstart/missing/resource if my codebase is http://my.application/webstart

Does the classloader i get from icedtea-web behave the way I think? Is this how it's supposed to work? ��

If this is how it's supposed to work, doesn't this have quite big performance implications?
