Perhaps JAWS is not well behaved w.r.t multiple DLL versions ?
Does it happen only on win 8 ? If you boot the same system into win 8 or 
win 8.1 is it OK ?

What do you see logged by hotspot from typing Ctrl-Break in the shell ?
Other than that, debugging is very likely going to require you build 
with VS2013

Does it happen if you use javaw instead of java ?
