Of course, a random environment may randomly expose bugs, but those
bug may sometimes be very har to track down. I think it is much better
to know what we actually are testing and be able to document
that. What you write is an indication that we might need explicit
tests regarding classpath order and interaction of multiple jars in
the user classpath in a controlled manner.
