Nullpointer exception in the construction of new Driver()

           Summary: Nullpointer exception in the construction of new
                    Driver()
           Product: Fop
           Version: all
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
        ReportedBy: [EMAIL PROTECTED]


I've cross-checked the source code for fop version 0.20.1 and came across the 
following bug: when constructing a new org.apache.fop.apps.Driver(), one comes 
finally across the Service class within the same source file. This class uses 
the classloader of a class that comes in as a parameter to search for 
additional services by ClassLoader cl = cls.getClassLoader(). The java doc of 
Class.getClassLoader() states however that this method can return null in case 
the class at hand is loaded by the bootstrap class loader (which is the case in 
the way we run our applications). All of this results in the aforementioned 
NullPointer when retrieving the resources by ClassLoader.getResources(String) 
at line 540 in the sourcecode for Driver.java of version 0.20.1.
