The native launcher selects the first JRE, 
where all version, arch and os attributes match.
On Unix we have the situation, 
where you have installed many JRE's, 
and those JRE's are accumulated in the deployment.properties
if their path differs.
Selecting the first is an arbitrary decision.
In the case, where all attributes match,
the best match in the set is the running JRE.

SUGGESTED FIX In case of a fake registry (-> Unix), where we gather the running JRE, we shall try to match the path in the set of same versioned JRE's while selecting the desired one.

EVALUATION This bug impacts SQE's test framework, since it is common practise to run test cases on different unreleased JRE's which share the same version.
