I wouldn't trust that comment. Dain's commit was addressing this very  
problem (at least within the server runtime:

You need to check to see what type of ClassLoader is being used. If  
it's not JarFileClassLoader, then we understand the problem. If it is

all of these things, then obviously I'm wrong again... ;-)
