      Description

      javac doesn't seem to "pull in" other jar files listed in the classpath manifest of any jar files included in javac's explicityly defined classpath.

      For example, if B.jar includes A.jar in its classpath manifest and I run:

      javac -classpath B.jar

      I'll receive "class not found" errors for the classes included in A.jar.
