This depends on the sorts of edits you do.
For example, changing contrast or levels globally, or running a sharpen
filter, will often accentuate the original jpeg artifacts so that they
in turn create new artifacts.
(that's why I mentioned levels, curves and sharpen explicitly in the
post i made somewhere else in this thread).
