      Follow-on to ACCUMULO-2657.

      The Shard randomwalk test can fail if the general.maven.project.basedir property differs between a table and its copy. This can happen if servers start from different Java user directories, because the default property value of "" (the empty string) is run through new File("").getAbsolutePath(), and that file is expanded to become the user directory.

      Fix how that default value is defined or interpreted so that the test passes without having to explicitly set the property.

      The ultimate goal is to future-proof AccumuloClassLoader. Currently, it is the only true consumer of the property, and it pulls it directly from accumulo-site.xml instead of going through the configuration system. Because of this, it is not subject to the value becoming the user directory, which is a Good Thing. If it were someday refactored to use the configuration system, though, it could then start to pull test classes in from the user directory, which should not happen in production and could lead to a security violation.
