While trying to open files with j's file-browser on osx 10.3.3
strange things happen. Some files in a directory open on <return>-
key or <mouse-dbl-click> as expected. Others never do - without a
cause. Browsing the dir-tree works fine, soft-links are no problem,
but strangely some files never open ?
I haven't heard of this problem before, but in any case, since I don't
have a Mac, I have no way to investigate it.
It might be useful to try adding this line to ~/.j/prefs:
dirUseNativeFormat = false
to see if the misbehavior changes.

I've committed a slightly-easier-to-read version of this change, which
I hope is identical in effect to the original above. Please let me know
if this does or doesn't work on Mac OS X; I don't have a Mac to test on.

Are we talking about moving src/Main.java to src/ArmedBearJ.java?
I'm also not sure what you mean by "move it to the default package".
What's the default package?
In principle I wouldn't mind doing something like this, but I'd
probably be inclined to call it simply "J.java".

I think I'd rather have menus that work correctly as part of the
application window as opposed to broken menus on the screen menu bar,
so I haven't done anything to set the aforementioned system properties.
Since, as mentioned, I don't have a Mac, I'm not going to be the one to
work on this, but if anyone can figure out how to do it without
breaking anything I'd be glad to consider a well-tested patch.
