Thanks for your bug report, and sorry about the delay.

I verified that it was me who commited the change in
question (see
) I checked the latest version of the spec and it says
that :

"This method delegates the call to its class loader,
after making these changes to the resource name: if
the resource name starts with "/", it is unchanged;
otherwise, the package name is prepended to the
resource name after converting "." to "/". If this
object was loaded by the bootstrap loader, the call is
delegated to ClassLoader.getSystemResource."

I interpret the spec in the way that it's up to the
actual class loader implementation to remove the
leading '/'. I've attached a patch that allows to use
resource names as in        
again. Could you give it a try and tell me if it fixes
the problem you are experiencing?
