This panel controls the order in which JVMs are scanned for a version that matches the JVMVersion in the Info.plist. But you should also be able to drag Java 7 to the top of that list so it can be used as the default Java for the command line.

Works fine for me at 10.6. Both java_home and Java Preferences.
Tried each location I know of for a second 1.7.0 install
No problems in displaying that I noticed from any location.
