I think the right way to fix it is loading BeanInfo with the ClassLoader 
that was used to load the Bean class itself, since the Bean class may 
not be reachable through the default (i.e. the class loader of the 
method calling Class.forName(String)) class loader, so it should be 
loaded using the class loader that was used to load the bean class.

Thanks for spotting it, I'm looking forward to apply your patch. BTw, 
could you please send a patch with the fix to the GNU Classpath project 
as well, along with the fix to IndexedPropertyDescriptor? I'm sure they 
would love to have those bug fixes as well.
