RFR [11] (JAXP): 6857903: SAXException.initCause() does not correctly set Exception

Hi Aleksei,

In the case of creating SAXException and then calling initCause() it 
looks like
the value returned by getException() and getCause() may differ.
The past behavior and the descriptions of those two methods are the same.
Is the change intentional?

If not, you may need to override initCause() to update the 'exception'
