With jEdit open on a larger secondary display, the end
of the text area disappears when drag highlighing.

I think that this has something to do with display
metrics, so here are my display settings:
Primary display: 1024x768
Secondary display: 1280x1024

Situation:
jEdit is open on the secondary display open almost full
display length, so there is a section of the textarea
that would be off the bottom of the display if the
window was on the primary display.

The file being edited is around 3 pages long, IE
scolling is occurring. I'm highlighting from
approximate middle of the file to the end by click
dragging the mouse to the bottom of the window causing
the textarea to scroll.

When the end of the file is reached the last few lines
are incorrectly blank. The last line appears when the
mouse button is release from the drag selection. (1st
grab in attachment)

Scrolling up and down by a single line causes the text
area to display the missing area correctly. (2nd grab)

Removing the selection (single mouse click), the lines
disappear completely (3rd grab). Again, single line
scroll will redisplay the lines.

The textarea operates as expected (always displaying
the last lines) after jEdit window has been reduced to
fit within the dimensions of the primary display (but
still on the secndary display).

    I'm experiencing exactly the problem described above, but in addition I have lines disappearing on the second display when I save a file.
