here at Karlsruhe we are offering a practical Course on Isabelle which
began last week and we were badly surprised that Isabelle/jEdit 2013 had
severe issues on the machines in the student’s pool room: A short while
into editing the highlighting (errors and the light blue) and the output
window are no longer updated.

We could reproduce it most easily by writing, say,
         theory Scratch imports Main begin lemma "foobar"
and then changing "lemma" to "le mma" and back in very rapid succession.

I occasionally had similar problems but did not manage to produce a reproducible example yet. However, I managed to get the system back to working by hitting the "Cancel' button in the "Theories" window a few times.

Unfortunately, hitting "Cancel" doesn't work here at Karlsruhe. However, in the student's computer pool hitting "Check" while a large theory file is being processed, seems to reliabely result in the same freeze of the Output panel.

As there is no error message in the Output panel or at the command line, what are our options to investigate the problem? Is there an option to log the communication between jEdit and the isabelle process? Would this information help to find the cause?
