I feel this is the wrong place to do this fix. Instead of patching the component itself the Security component should be disabled in CakeErrorController::__construct() before calling the Controller::startupProcess(). If someone is using a custom exception renderer with a custom controller for rendering view this check would be useless anyway.

AuthComponent has the same check in the same place. I agree though it might be a better solution to have the controller disable those components as part of its startup process. I'll make that change, as I felt this was a bit icky at the time.

Yup same change would be required for Auth too.
