#10 Multiple instances with custom name

If I start a l4j application with "custom process name"
option set twice or more, only the first instance gets
the custom process name. L4j should recycle any
preexisting launch4j-tmp applications (they are all the
same binary).

BTW using the custom process name has some advantages
on WinXP systems because the prefetching mechanism
works on process name basis. Java applications with
custom name are prefeching only the relevant data, and
with the same name the set union of all java
applications will be prefetched. So I noticed the
problem with the missing 2nd process name about the
increased launch time.

    thanks for the report! Launch4j recycles active launchers,
    but unfortunately a small bug creeped in. I'll upload a
    bugfix release soon, until then you can fix it with the
    attached files (replace head/head.o).
