Actually, what is your Mac OS version?

The Mac Pro in my office runs Snow Leopard most of the time, while my 
MacBook is on Mountain Lion already.  I am not testing Lion much.

There are two sources of problems with Java/jEdit on Mac OS to be 
anticipated for the coming months:

   (1) Special cases in jEdit to accomodate former Apple Java 1.6
       now work against Oracle Java 1.7.  I've already removed some old
       key handler workaround to make normal COMMAND-C/X/V work without
       further ado on Java 1.7.

   (2) Java 1.7 is officially supported by Oracle only for Lion and
       Mountain Lion, but usually "happens to work" on Snow Leopard as
       well.  They don't make plans against it, but they don't support it

In the testing phase of Java 1.7, Oracle had a version for Snow Leopard 
that was based on a certain update/patch for Apple's Java 1.6.  Thus my 
local machine might now look slightly different to official Java 1.7 and 
have fewer problems in that respect.
