Have a look at CLI-177, it's simply a call to OptionBuilder.reset in a finally 
block instead in the end of normal application flow and an explicit call 
before an IAE (and a unit tests). Therefore I'd tend to fix it properly here, 
simply because it's not really changing standard behavior, but prevents from 
random settings injection. Fixing the tests by invoking reset in setUp is 
more a hack, since the reset method is not public. I simply did not want to 
commit CLI-177 without agreement in the middle of an RC.
