Hi folks,

Because of platform specifics the Java launcher contains some extra 
wildcard expansion processing on Windows.

As part of this processing the list of args received by 
CreateApplicationArgs (java_md.c) is compared to the original list in 
the java launchers main method.

Unfortunately the CreateApplicationArgs list has already been filtered 
by TranslateApplicationArgs which removes VM specific flags. This 
results in the launcher incorrectly neglecting to expand wildcard arguments.

This fix filters the main method args in the same way so 
CreateApplicationArgs will be comparing like with like.
