Thanks for adding a test, I agree with Chris that it would be great if 
the test didn't use rt.jar. As Chris mentions, rt.jar is only created 
for images builds and most of it working on the JDK doesn't bother with 
images. Also rt.jar will go away once we move to modules.

One other comment on the test is that it only exercises the "t" option, 
I think the issue that is being fixed also impacts the extract ("x") option.
