For me "\t" does not work as an accept character (nothing happens when I 
type "\t"... that's the only reason why I use "\n"). Also, when setting 
the delay to 0, I sometimes (nondeterministically it seems) end up in 
the situation that jEdit does not react to keystrokes anymore (Mouse is 
still working). However this was with jEdit from a few days ago. I did 
not yet try with "the new one". (Unfortunately I did not yet find out 
how to trigger this bug voluntarily.)
