The attached patch fixes PR804, which is a bug in the javaws launcher. 
The launcher was eating up spaces in arguments, which caused problems 
when javaws was used to run jnlp files which included spaces. The fix 
uses bash arrays to hold and build the command to execute to ensure that 
spaces are handled correctly.

Please note that this switches the interpreter used in javaws from sh to 

I would like to push this to HEAD and backport it to 1.1 as well.

   * launcher/javaws.in: Use bash arrays to store and join the various
   arguments to ensure spaces are handled correctly.

Any thoughts or concerns?
