Subject Re: [classlib][security] BC provider as default Harmony crypto provider

Hi, Leo

Actually my custom policy files don't include any SUN-specific policy
grants and the tests pass on RI.

Anyway, I agree to treat the difference as non-bug specifics since you
were able to make RI fail:)

Thank you for your attention to the issue!
