Not your mistake, mine 8-)

The classloader change in 1.6 (which package we force to be loaded via
the system clasloader) has been ported to the 1.5 branch - and it is
really important for people running JDK 1.4.  We had several Gump
failures related to it when Sam switched to 1.4.

Waiting for the critical bugfix and then not having to track down the
less critical fixes as well?

I'll send a different mail on this issue.  This is my itch that I want
to see sufficiently scratched before we release 1.5.2.
