[isabelle-dev] jEdit import theories

I used a literal "~" and changing this to "$HOME" solved the problem, 



PS: Is it just me or is Isabelle/jEdit really much faster than 
ProofGeneral/emacs when loading theories? (Maybe this is due to some 
other difference between Isabelle2011-1 and the repo version; I only use 
emacs if I have to stick to Isabelle2011-1.)
