[isabelle-dev] How to use the Isabelle *release's* jEdit with the *repository* code?

The details of packaging jEdit & why it appears different depending on my
invocation are still mysterious to me, but when I just tried to reproduce
the *problems* I was having, I was unable to. (Perhaps the limitation was
on a previous version of Isabelle and I've just been working around it
since then?)

Regardless, your replies were very useful to me. Thank you.
