It's possible it would not cause any regression, I don't know for sure 
(it's a bit the issue).

The original claim was to fix 39704, which cannot be fixed (the bug is 
really invalid, for the reasons I stated inside the bug, since when 
creating the loader the privileged flag value will always be "false"; 
other similar bugs may be valid, but this one is not), so I tried to 
find something a bit safer for the 5.5 branch. I cleaned up the creation 
of the Loader in TC 6, so that it's no longer mandatory to pass the 
parent CL when creating the object (and it should fix this mess without 
all the creative hacks).
