Classpaths

When ran from the dotty script, this is the classloader stack:

=====================================================
class sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader  <= corresponds to java.class.path
sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader@591ce4fe
file:/mnt/data-local/Work/Workspace/dev-2.11/dotty/target/scala-2.11.0-M7/dotty_2.11.0-M7-0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar:file:/home/sun/.ivy2/cache/org.scala-lang/scala-library/jars/scala-library-2.11.0-M7.jar:file:/home/sun/.ivy2/cache/org.scala-lang/scala-reflect/jars/scala-reflect-2.11.0-M7.jar

When running from sbt or Eclipse, the classloader stack is:

=====================================================
class sbt.classpath.ClasspathUtilities$$anon$1
sbt.classpath.ClasspathUtilities$$anon$1@22a29f97
file:/mnt/data-local/Work/Workspace/dev-2.11/dotty/target/scala-2.11.0-M7/classes/:file:/home/sun/.ivy2/cache/org.scala-lang/scala-library/jars/scala-library-2.11.0-M7.jar:file:/home/sun/.ivy2/cache/org.scala-lang/scala-reflect/jars/scala-reflect-2.11.0-M7.jar:file:/home/sun/.ivy2/cache/org.scala-lang.modules/scala-xml_2.11.0-M7/bundles/scala-xml_2.11.0-M7-1.0.0-RC7.jar

=====================================================

Since scala/dotty only pick up java.class.path and sun.boot.class.path, it's clear why Dotty crashes in sbt and Eclipse unless we set the boot classpath explicitly.
