OK, thanks for the explanation - I appreciate that -, it makes sense to 
me now.
Btw, I spotted this exactly with a WS-Security scenario; basically the 
client was redefining the thread context classloader to allow it seeing 
the merlin conf stuff; however the thread was already associated with a 
bus, which happened to have been created using the former thread context 
classloader... and of course Merlin could not find the conf files when 
the Bus started using the ClassLoader extension instead of the thread 
context classloader. I fixed my client and I'm going to add some 
explicit doc about this.
