When I enter "cd \java\bio" in the Console the editor

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
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
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.
