PropertyEditorsTest unit test may harm editorSearchPath

                 Key: GERONIMO-2860
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: common
            Reporter: Roman S. Bushmanov

This unit test may harm editorSearchPath being run first in a testlist. 
In that case subsequent runs of other unit tests for this module in the same environment will
result in NPE.

The reason is simple. If the first test in test run is PropertyEditorsTest than its setUp()
method is called before org.apache.geronimo.common.propertyeditor.PropertyEditors was loaded
and initialized.  So setUp() method stores wrong value of editorSearchPath because it is modified
upon PropertyEditors class initialization. After both test cases of the test are completed
and PropertyEditors class is loaded the method tearDown() sets back the wrong value of editorSearchPath.
As a result after the test run editorSearchPath has incorrect value. 

The suggested fix is to load PropertyEditors clas explicitly before caching the value of editorSearchPath
as follows

protected void setUp() throws Exception {
    	editorSearchPath = PropertyEditorManager.getEditorSearchPath();
