JAXRPCServlet overrides init(ServletConfig) and it does NOT call super.init(ServletConfig) when it should. Sorry I was not clear before, I mistakenly assumed that people are familiar with the JAX-RPC source code :)

So I assume this is a bug ... Hopefully it will be fixed if it is not already. I would file a bug but I don't know where ... It's so hard to find anything on the Sun sites ...
