Well I should have played around a little harder before asking, because 
by the end of the day yesterday I had figured out the problem and 
solution.  But I figured I should share it withh you all in case anyone 
else has the same question in the future.

What was happening was the executable bit was no longer set on the 
.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub executable.  I was able to 
correct this with an <executable> tag and now the .app launches 
correctly after installation.
