See <
browse_thread/thread/f9ddb5327367c0aa#> for a minimal example of the
bug causing the problem, and my version numbers.

I've discovered a "fix"; after killing the kernel and frontend
processes, also kill any "JavaApplicationS" processes. After killing
those, Mathematica will start without complaining about licensing.
