BTW I think I've found out the reason for this bug. Eclipse 3.3 has an 
ICU4J implementation bundled with it. It uses ICU 3.6.1 while we have 
ICU4J 3.4.4 in bootclasspath.

In this case ICU classes are loaded from our 3.4.4 JAR file except for 
some classes that may not be present in the older version. In this case 
they are taken from Eclipse's JAR file which leads to inconsistencies.

I wonder why older verifier implementation works ok...
