(11/33) 3099895 - Ubuntu 10.10 - shell script issues

When jEdit 4.3.2 has been installed via Ubuntu package management, a shell script is used to invoke jEdit which differs from the one in the Java-based installer. I'm not sure that all the differences are intended:

1. Sun Java is used as the latest alternative, even when it is configured as default alternative.
This seems not to be in accordance to the recommendation at

2. The command line options "-background" and "-reuseview" are not used.
While each of them is a matter of taste, at least "-reuseview" should be used by default, I think. In general users are irritated about one jEdit view per each opened file.
