Hi all,

  could I have reviews for this small fix to the above mentioned test
case recently pushed to the 8u60 tree?

The problem is that the location of the whitebox library changed from
8u60 to 9, so a library path needs to be fixed.

This got through local testing because the problem only occurs if this
test is the first one using the whitebox classes. If another
Whitebox-using test has been executed before this, the compiler would
find the whitebox class file and everything would be fine.

During local testing I tested all tests before pushing, and in 8u60 unit
tests will not be executed at jprt time (and even then it would have
depended on the order of execution whether this test fails).

The proposed fix sets the test's library path correctly.
