You're right, this will cause conflict.

In the case of JMXStartStopTest.sh and runSerialBench.sh then it might 
be better to remove the -server.

Stuart might have an opinion on runRmiBench.sh but one idea is to change 
is so that when run interactively (TESTJAVA not set) then it works as it 
does now and runs the benchmark twice. If TESTJAVA is not set then it 
runs the benchmark once, with whatever VM options are in use.
