I've installed the newest jEdit but it hangs at sturtup with 'run startup scripts'. I removed .jedit folder but nothing changed. And running jEdit doesn't ceate new .jedit folder.

    jEdit 5 uses a different settings folder: %APPDATA%\jedit
    (usually: documents and settings\user_name\application data\jedit)

    Please delete this and try again.
