Sorry, I read your email in M3 thread first and replied to it. Reply

Hmm no. In this case it should be a different bug since IBM VME exports 
JNI_CreateJavaVM as "JNI_CreateJavaVM" (as sun does), not as 
"_JNI_CreateJavaVM@12" as DRLVM currently does. So it is something 
different. Maybe eclipse.exe actually uses java.exe when it finds 
eclipse/jre directory?...
