ash script pid reported by shell:       828
ash script pid in task manager:         856
java pid reported by ps                 1640    PPID 828
java pid reported by task mnager        1640
bash pid                                1248

BTW with the script started in the background (or indeed fg and ^Z) kill %1 
does not work (it used to) it is reported as terminated but is still running.
