    you need to be more specific than that, otherwise we will
    have a very hard time tracking down and fixing the bug.

    Ok, specifics.. I am working with about 6 java source
    files. I compile one, use the Console selector to pick
    System, and enter "cd \java\bio" which is the directory the
    source files are in. Then a DOS box opens, obscuring the
    editor and closes (this is very fast). The editor fails to
    repaint itself and is unresponsive to mouse and keyboard.
    Other applications are fine. I have to CTRL-ALT-DEL and
    then select JEdit to close it.
    When I installed Jedit 3.2 it installed in a different
    directory than my previous install. I noticed however that
    the files in \windows\.jedit seem untouched, at least my
    backups, codeaid files, etc were still there.
    I initially installed Jedit using all the default options.
    I have since removed several pluggins. Buffertabs, which
    seems prone to misbehaving when opening several files at
    once. Whitespace, which hung the editor (making it totally
    unresponsive) when I tried to display the pluggin menu. I
    also removed a few other pluggins. I have used the pluggin
    manager exclusively for all pluggin installs/removals.
    The only odd thing about my installation that I know of is
    that my JDK (1.3.1) is in a directory c:\jdk instead of the
    usual c:\jdk1.3.1. In order to compile I have added the
    tools.jar to the classpath using the JEdit utility for
    setting Jedit configuration (in the menu).
    Please let me know what else I can tell you that will be
    helpful.
    And BTW thanks for a great editor, truly a please to use!

    It's strange that 'cd' is spawning a new process.

    can you tell me the output of entering %aliases in the
    system shell, and also of %cd <path> works.

    I tried both "%aliases" and "%cd \java\bio" and both
    crashed the editor as before, the box flashes and then the
    editor becomes unresponsive.
    Just to double check my assumptions: When I say Console, I
    mean I have either recently compiled and the Console (and
    often the Error Tab - sigh) are displayed, or I have
    explicitly selected 'Console' from the pluggin menu. When I
    say I am entering 'cd \java\bio' in the console I mean I
    have selected the item in the combobox that says 'System'
    and then enter the text for the command. It doesn't seem
    to matter whether I press ENTER next, or select one of the
    new buttons to the right of the textfield (with either
    mouse or tab+space). I have since tried other commands
    such as 'dir' and they also crash the editor.
    Just in case you want me to try reinstalling, would you
    mind providing info on how to make sure I get a clean
    install?
    The only other thing that I can think of that might be
    important is that when I installed my pluggins I opted to
    have them install in the 'system' dir instead of the 'user'
    dir. If when using an older version of the editor I
    selected the user dir, which pluggin dir will be used?

    We have determined this is caused by a Java bug. Console
    3.0.2 will disable environment variables under Windows 9x,
    so the bug will no longer manifest itself.
