FTR, I use Emacs shell for everything except jshell, and have to
launch a separate shell app. (Terminal) to run jshell.  That's the only
reason I launch that app.  My pitchfork is still in the shed, but I feel
the pain here too.  There's probably a config. switch I'm missing,
but jshell has never worked for me under Emacs.
