I received the following reply from Vampire, a jEdit maintainer, on 
another list:

I guess you are referring to Unity?
With 4.4.1 this is fixed.
Except of course if you create a custom launcher (.desktop file) instead 
of using the shipped one or just pinning the app to the launcher when 
If you make a custom .desktop file or want to "fix" the one shipped with 
4.3.2, add the appropriate StartupWMClass to it:
