      Description

      One of my test runs failed with the following error:

      1) testAllUncommittedReclaim(org.apache.derbyTesting.functionTests.tests.store.AccessTest)java.sql.SQLException: Java exception: 'access denied (java.io.FilePermission /export/home/tmp/kh160127/derbyall/system/ac72985692x012bxc9d4x9594xffffa08cb27a0.class write): java.security.AccessControlException'.

      I think the underlying error is an OutOfMemoryError, because I have seen tests running out of permgen space with the same configuration lately. But that error never gets all the way out to the test framework because of the above file permission error.

      When DatabaseClasses.loadGeneratedClass() fails with a LinkageError or a VirtualMachineError (the super-class of OutOfMemoryError), it attempts to dump the generated class to disk. But since the tests run under a security manager, and the code writes the class to disk isn't wrapped in a privileged block, the dumping of extra debug info fails and hides the original error.
