[notice] jEdit: jEdit version 3.2pre6

When associating files with jedit.exe (or using the
context menu item) jEdit sometimes open with a new
document (Document-1) and not the file "requested".
This only occurs when no jEdit instance is running.

    The launcher times out after ten seconds if it cannot find
    the server data file that jEdit creates upon opening. In
    that event jEdit loads but no data is sent to open a file.
    So if jEdit takes longer than ten seconds to load, you
    don't get the requested document.

    I have lengthened the time out period to fifteen seconds in
    the next release. The timer routine now allows the desktop
    to refresh while the launcher waits for jEdit. If you want
    to receive an updated module now, email me.

    You might also try putting jedit.jar at the head of your -
    classpath parameter instead of at the end. Select "Set
    jEdit Parameters" in the jEdit program group or
    run "jedit.exe /p" from a command prompt.

    I guess the pre-startup is slower than final so I'm not
    that worried (now that I know why it fails).
