Public bug reported:
The JEDIT program runs extremely well, but it does cause an icon to be
displayed in the upper left corner of the screen, just under the task
bar. This icon is created and "fixed positioned" at that location
anytime that JEDIT is running, regardless of where the actual jedit
program window is positioned. (I, have a dual monitor setup, and it
always is positioned at the point on screen 1, even if the app was
started or moved to screen 2.)
This extra icon covers up the close icon of what ever application is really
positioned at the
top left of screen 1.
The icon does nothing, except prevent you from clicking on the "close
icon" that is just below it. PLEASE NOTE this icon is NOT positioned
over JEDIT's close icon, unless JEDIT's window just happens to be
position at the top left.
It is possible to move the covered up application's window just down, or
just to the right so the covered-up close icon is now visible. You can
now close that app...
It has occurred to be that the JEDIT designer who added this "feature"
meant to make it harder to close JEDIT in error, and that they only had
If this is what was desired, then the icon should have been position
over the top left corner of JEDIT's window, rather than the Monitors
