#3551 Right click input of "Search/Replace" makes screen black!

severe bug
don Rhummy

If I right click in the "Search for:" text input boxes my entire screen goes black! NOTE: This ONLY happens for the "Search for" input, not for the "Replace with" input!

** This ALSO happens in the "Search for" input box at the top of jedit's window!

This never happend with the last version of jedit.

Using: jEdit 4.4.1

    OK, I did a little trial & error and I figured out the problem:

    If your list of previous "[find]" items gets too long, it'll turn the screen black. I didn't test the minimum to do this, but a list of 522 past items turns my screen black. 200 or so items and it doesn't turn black.

    Thanks for the finding. I think even 200 items are way too many to be useful, no?
    Anyway, you can configure it:
    Global Options -> Appearance -> History text field entries to remember.
    The default is 25. If you changed it to something like 500, I don't think it's a common case, and not sure it's worth changing the code.

    This was due to user setting a very large value for history text field entries and does not exist in jEdit's default setup.
