The only way this can matter is if there is a case where all other threads would return (thus stopping them) without any calls to `System.exit`. In that case, the earlier code would report a timeout, while the new code would exit with a normal (0) status. Not sure that's what we want.

I tested the "bad" case. That means I removed the fix and I see the segfault, but the JVM does not exit - it exists after 15s with the timeout (error code 3), but not with the expected code 134. Someone looking at a segfault problem would then get the wrong information and look at the wrong code. That is fixed by making the process reaper a daemon thread.

I could add another error return at the end of myapp7.DataUrlWithModuleLayerLauncher.main(String[]). That point should only be reached when all JavaFX windows are closed or the Platform is explicitly shutdown.
