Java aborts due to sloppy locking with libxcb.

Locking assertion failure. Backtrace:
#0 /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0 [0xb5230856]

However, libxcb-1.1 allows broken apps to continue instead of aborting if the environment variable LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1 is set. The shell scripts need to make sure this is set before calling java.
