I would start debugging by looking at what JREs are actually listed at 
"Tools - Options... - LibreOffice - Advanced - Java Options", and 
running LO with SAL_LOG=+WARN+INFO.jfw to get all the log output from 
the code responsible for choosing a JRE and starting a JVM (assuming 
your build is not (implicitly) configured as --disable-sal-log).
