Could you try with
     PROC "%-Dse.process.name=JBoss3-workflow"
i.e. use a reg.expression instead of a simple string ?

Right now the process-name checks will accept any kind of match
for a regular expression. But for simple string matches, it assumes
the string is a program name, not an option - so it wants a blank or
a slash before and after the part of the string that it finds in 
the ps output.

I thought it was a good idea when I did that, but now I'm not so sure.
