You are right, I noticed this difference in behavior (between .bat and .sh 
scripts) when I was working on the related DERBY-2501 [1], but I did not have a 
particular itch for doing anything about it at that time.

Won't the logic for determining the correct path have to be moved from 
derby_common.sh to each top-level script as well?

Anyway, you are free to create a new Jira issue for improving this. I'm sure you 
will get comments if things need to be the way they are for some reason.
