I'm glad you got it figured out, but I'm not sure what's wrong.

The whole point of setting your CLASSPATH variable is that you do
*not* need to say '-cp $CLASSPATH', since the 'java' executable
will use the CLASSPATH environment variable when no '-cp' argument
is present on the command line.

I'm having trouble figuring out things you might have done where
'-cp $CLASSPATH' is different from omitting the -cp argument entirely.

Is it possible that you did

   set CLASSPATH=...

instead of doing

   export CLASSPATH=...
