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
