Many thanks for looking at this. While the iron is hot - this problem is 
still outstanding and I don't know whether you would expect this to be 
fixed also:

Interactive bash shell starts:
         -> shell script using ash starts:
                 -> java program

^C-ing the script does not have any visible effect (i.e. the java program 
is not killed). As noted previously this problem is resolved if you make 
/bin/sh be bash rather than ash.
