#1408 When a file is dropped into jEdit, it should become current


When dragging a file from a File Manager into jEdit, jEdit opens the file in a buffer, but does not make it the *current* buffer - so in order to edit the file I just dragged, I need to select it manually. When a file is dragged into jEdit, its buffer should become the active (current) buffer.

    This problem seems to be related to BufferTabs. When BufferTabs is disabled, this does not happen.
    Note that maybe there's some exception thrown from BufferTabs - in which case maybe the core can be less fragile when this happens.

    Fixed in SVN rev. 19527. Turns out to be a JRE bug, which throws an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when a file is dropped into jEdit. The workaround is to catch it early, in BufferTabs, and not let it affect the upper-level code.
