CSS: style leaks from unrelated stylesheet

My controls in JFXtras have been overriding getUserAgentStylesheet from day 1 (or better JavaFX 2.0), AFAIK that is the way to do it. But I'm curious if this change is the cause of the CSS issues I'm seeing in 8U40.

This has been fixed in 8u40 where the getUserAgentStylesheet method is now public API on Region and the styles added will affect only the Region and its children.
