I start Nedit server implicitly with nc (the default
% nc <file>
The server command is set by the X resource to
"nedit -server -sync".
The server starts running but the client hangs for some

the file exist. All the consequent attempts to call nc
are successive, i.e. this file and any others are
opened as expected.
If I omit the option "-sync" from the server command,
no error is displayed and the file is opened from the
I have observed this behavior both in the current CVS

downloaded from the site.
% nedit -V
