So if two tests tries to load the same library we get errors. It would be possible to change this if samevm mode is removed from jtreg.
The restriction to use separate class loaders exists in agentvm mode as
well. I don't think it would be advisable to change this, partly because
different tests may define the same class, and partly because you want
to be able to get rid of classes that are no longer required.
