The pid returned by $! wasn't the java process; I'm not sure why. I
only tested cygwin before changing the script; could be specific to
cygwin. Another possibility - if the windows launcher does an exec
like the solaris/linux launcher does, that may a create new process
id. FWIW, $! worked correctly for other programs (e.g., sleep).
