jEdit version: 3.0pre4

This might have happened in a low memory situation and in conjunction with JCompiler (where JCompiler was configured to save the buffer before it compiled). Two files I was editing were reduced to zero length when saved. I only noticed this when I came back into jEdit & the buffers were empty.

    After editing some files with jEdit version 2.5 final I had the same problem. After closing a HTML file it sometimes was reduced to zero length.

    I will make file saving more reliable in case of an exception in jEdit 3.1.

    jEdit 3.2 now saves a file to #<filename>#save#, and only if
    that is successful does it rename it to <filename>. So this
    problem should be fixed.
