#1232 jDiff error: unsplit view

minor bug

with jEdit 4.1pre2, jDiff started on an unsplit view
results in an error message from Java, rather than a
regular error message from the plugin (or perform
splitting automatically).
The activity log (enclosed) says:

[debug] DualDiff: Splitting: the view has to be split
in two
[error] BeanShellAction: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError:

and the error is also shown in a dialog box.
See version information in the enclosed activity log

    unsolved as of jEdit 4.1pre4

    I don't know that that V is doing here...

    I checked JDiff sources and they seemed right...

    tried view.splitVertically() from the beanshell and it also

    I'm getting the same behaviour as nvardi with 4.1pre4 and
    jDiff 1.3.

    Tried compiling and jar'ing the code from the current jDiff
    release (1.3), and that version doesn't have the problem -
    looks like a bad binary crept into the plugin distribution.

    This is probably a linkage error of some sort. I have
    modified Plugin Central to disallow downloading this version
    of JDiff from jEdit 4.1. The problem remains, however, and
    should be fixed in the the first release of JDiff plugin
    that requires 4.1 or greater.

    The method has changed between 4.0 and 4.1
    The V after the method means that the JVM is looking for a
    method returning void.

    public void splitVertically()

    in 4.1 the method is:

    public EditPane splitVertically()
    return split(JSplitPane.HORIZONTAL_SPLIT);
