I did examine the Eclipse code, and it is invalid (you must not attempt 
to access other CL controlled resources based on another URL which was 
returned by the CL).

However, I did add a workaround in the CL which makes your test case 
work, but which has a performance penalty on first access to a JAR. I 
think avoiding resource leak is more important.
