Can you give your current Isabelle changeset id?  Not just as a habit on 
the isabelle-dev mailing list, but to make any sense for such a report.

There is certainly not a general problem of jedit and JVM on Mac OS that 
covers all versions of the past and future.  Funny things on Mac OS have 
happened before, but were sorted out at some point, by looking very 
closely which version of what was used of what component.
