Duplicate Buffers after jumping to search result
Submitted by imgod2u on Sunday, 14 November, 2010 - 00:22
I've noticed this happen a few times now both on Solaris and on Windows. When searching a relatively large file (3000 lines or so), if I jump to a result (especially through Hypersearch), there would be duplicated buffers in BufferTabs. Now, I originally thought this was just a bug in the plugin but I noticed that when I edit one, the other buffer would not update. It would also pop up the notification that the file had been changed on disk.

This leads me to believe jEdit opened duplicate buffers of the same file after jumping to the search result line. I'm running 4.3 final using java 1.4.2 but on Windows, I've noticed it happen with the latest JRE and 4.3 final.

Has anyone else run into this problem? Any possible solutions?

1. Do the duplicate buffers appear in the built-in buffer-switcher (Global Options -> View -> Show Buffer Switcher)?

2. Does the built-in buffer-switcher really show the same path for these buffers?

If the answers are "yes", I would try to delete the settings directory first in order to get rid of maybe corrupted settings. The name of this directory is shown at "Utilities -> Settings Directory". Caution: Shutdown jEdit before!

Also, You could update to jEdit 4.3.2 which contains several bug fixes.

Yes, the duplicate buffers appear in the buffer-switcher with the exact same paths. This is a fresh install on my Solaris machine (but the problem exists on my Windows machine as well, which I've had installed forever).

I am on 4.3.2 but this problem has existed for a while (and I've been using jEdit for a while).
