Thanks for clarifying.

What you are seeing is specific to JAR files added to the (otherwise 
does not exist) boot class path via -Xbootclasspath/a or agent 
equivalent. It's not a general issue. We've ignored this case in the 
current EA builds on the assumption that it should be very rare, we will 
probably need to look at it again.
