Don't have a real answer for that, at least not yet (but see below for
speculation).  Might need a classloader trace to figure that out, and
it's probably not worth the trouble.

That's fine; JAVA_OPTS isn't used for the Windows service.

Is there anything in the above directory?  If so, it may be involved.

The parser class name can also be specified in a .jar via a service
provider configuration file:

If such a jar file is seen before or during the call to
DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance(), it would appear to apply globally.
Not sure what happens if the jar file is encountered after the
newInstance() call, or if multiple jar files have conflicting settings.
