The enhancement for classloader with the conditional class verification does not properly handle the cases which NoClassDefFoundError and ClassFormatError is thrown. Thus, when either of these two errors are encountered, it leads to ClassCastException since the current code assumes the thrown object is of RuntimeException type.

EVALUATION Need to identify these two errors and propagate them up.
