Attention Roger! Sanskrit loans in Javanese etc.

I guess this is one for Roger primarily.

I need info on how Sanskrit/Prakrit loans are
treated in Javanese and other Indonesian lgs.
What little info I have is suggestive of a
NE IndoAryan substrate (/@/ > /Q/).
What happens to the different sibilants
and the aspirates?  I guess the name
_Bahasa Indonesia_ gives part of the answers! :-)
