Oops indeed, there's a problem here.
I did not noticed since I was using jikes.

legacy logic. It's a fallback. It's only if %JAVA_HOME%\bin\java.exe does
not exist, since it already jumped to jikes before, so you got it wrong in
your patch if you move it to checkJikes, it will be resetted in all cases
and you will get java from the path rather than from java home...not that
before that there was a difference between existence of java home and
existence of java.exe, since when there were no java home the fallback was
the path but it has been lost in the previous patch.

I will give it a look later...all this batch script thing is a miracle when
it works. Perl is even easier to read than batch files.
