Thanks Dale and Vampire for your help.

 

The freeze looks like a bug in recent JREs:

I reverted from JRE 1.6.0_26 to 1.6.0_24 and that fixed the problem.

 

Best regards

Or right-click into the field.

That up/down arrows recalled history is long ago.
I think since the input fields are multiline it is the page keys to have arrow keys for navigation in one entry.

Hi
 
 
 
I am running jEdit 4.4.1  on Windows 7 64-bit with Java 6.0.260.
 
 
 
If I attempt to shutdown Windows while jEdit  is running, jEdit  fails to
close and becomes unresponsive.  I have to kill jEdit with Task Manager. The
same behaviour happens with SmartSVN, which also uses Java.
 
 
 
I believe that I am running 32-bit Java.
 
 
 
I have also noticed that I cannot retrieve history in the search/replace
dialog box. The up and down arrow keys do not recall previous entries.
 
 
 
Do you have any idea how I can fix these problems please?
 
 
 
Best regards
