Fwiw, my experience from 10.4 is that you need to patch the code to make
it work. I'm working on a cleanup of both tools that I plan to commit to
trunk at some point, but I don't know if it will be ready by the time
you need it... 

There is a Jira for this, DERBY-3598. There is a preliminary patch there
which I used to create the release notes and changes for 10.4, but I'm
working on implementing Rick's suggestion.

Thanks for offering to do this.
