        Description

        A property file like the following should fail to load with an IAE

        a=\u0

        but if there's a preceding property like this, it might mis-parse instead:

        b=\u0123
        a=\u0

        -> property a erroneously becomes \u0123

        Fixing this might mean some properties files that were malformed would go from being silently misparsed to throwing an IllegalArgumentException, so a CSR will be filed.
