Please review http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~jgish/TestRB.2/ 

This fixes a regression caused by the removal of the search of the call 
stack for resource bundles by java.util.logging.  We have added a 
single-level search up the stack, i.e. just the immediate caller's 
ClassLoader, as an additional alternative to the specified method of 
using the thread context classloader if set and the system classloader 
if the TCCL is not set.  This is intended to handle cases such as 
Glassfish or other OSGi-based apps/3rd-party libs for which setting the 
TCCL is not feasible.
