        Description

        It demonstrates an inconsistency when using system and user preferences.

        When trying to create a system prefs node in a not-writable system environment
        the sync method throws an expected BackingStoreException. Now, creating another
        node in the user preferences - which are writable - and syncing this one as
        well should not be a problem. But it also throws a backing store exception
        due to the fact that sync does in fact a syncWorld - trying to create the
        system prefs node again.

        Other platform implementations of Java do not have this problem.

        The Environments was: Java 1.7 b215, OSX Lion
