I originally saw this posted on this web page: http://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail/macports-users/2008-February/009060.html. Since I'm having this problem as well and couldn't find a bug in the tracker for it, I'm submitting it here.
Although I read many complaints about nedit on OSX on the web I still thought
I'll give it a try since I love this little editor so much ....
I compiled nedit under Leopard but I get the following problem:
Whenever I open a file through the Open Dialog I cannot browse through
directories. nedit throws the following error message whenever I
double-click on a directory or file:
Character '\xx' not supported in font. Discarded.
The filter field is empty all the time.
When I try to open a file through the filter textfield nedit crashes and
displays: Bus error
