Version : 5.1.0 (this issue has been there in most previous versions)
Platform : Linux
Java version : jdk1.7.0_25-32 (this issue has been there in most previous versions)
Issue: jEdit opens the currently editing file in a new buffer.
How to reproduce:
Open a link (symbolic link) to a text file. It looks fine. Update something once.
Now remove the link, and recreate the link (with the same name) to a different text file.
Try updating and then find something in the open buffer. jEdit opens a duplicate buffer !
