That makes sense. I saw keystroke buffering behavior again today and
found this discussion while researching it:

I know jEdit has its own keyboard handling code, which they made the
default a few versions ago. (Come to think of it, I didn't experience
these problems with the old keyboard handling code.) I will follow up
on the jEdit-users mailing list.

Thanks for your help!
