This might not be related to the CME problem, but here:

     public static LocaleServiceProviderPool getPool(Class<? extends 
LocaleServiceProvider> providerClass) {
         LocaleServiceProviderPool pool = poolOfPools.get(providerClass);
         if (pool == null) {
             LocaleServiceProviderPool newPool =
                 new LocaleServiceProviderPool(providerClass);
             pool = poolOfPools.put(providerClass, newPool);
             if (pool == null) {
                 pool = newPool;

         return pool;

we should probably be using poolOfPools.putIfAbsent(providerClass, newPool)
