The problem after an upgrade is the remaining of the xerces JAR at 
tools/lib. The JARs are only copied on demand to that place, i.e. if no 
xerces JAR exists at that place at all. If there is already a 2.6.0 JAR 
it won't be replaced if you have updated only lib/endorsed. This is at 
least true for build.bat. copies the endorsed libs always to 
tools/lib, but does not remove old versions.

Is that explanation helpful?

Why are these three files copied at all? When the java.endorsed.dirs 
property is set (which is to lib/endorsed) the JARs are on the 
classpath. If we need to copy them the build script should probably made 
a bit more intelligent on this issue.
