(97/231) 2978040 - Command line option +line doesn't work at jEdit start

The command line option "+line" does only work if jEdit is already running when the command is invoked (connect to a jedit server). Otherwise the option is ignored. This issue seems to be introduced in jEdit 4.3pre16.

Works fine with 4.4 - development version. Can you check if it was fixed in later, official versions of 4.3?

I just tried the latest daily build (2010-04-21) with an empty settings directory - and the bug still occurs as described above. The same with jEdit 4.3.1 under Kubuntu 9.10

Again: For me it has stopped working with jEdit 4.3pre16. Every successive version shows this bug.

@Shlomy: Are You sure that jEdit didn't run in background at Your test?

Yes, I am sure. But you specified a new detail - it doesn't work with "-nosettings".
2010-04-23 - 21:01:49z
Hmm. I can try what I want, it doesn't work for me unless jEdit is already running.

To clarify: I did not use "-nosettings". I deleted the settings directory before the start of jEdit to get rid of the influence of any settings.

I can still reproduce with jEdit 4.4.2 and 4.5pre1 daily.
