   Yes and no.  The latest version of Jade *is* 1.2.1.  However, we
now have OpenJade, which is the publicly maintained successor to Jade
(with permission from James Clark, the author of Jade, who no longer
has the time or inclination to maintain it).  The latest version of
OpenJade is 1.3, and can be found via:
   However, since posting that patch, it has been pointed out to me
that it will not work in many cases.  I believe some better code for
this exists in the not-yet-released 1.4 code, so you may want to just
wait for that, rather than messing with this patch.
   In the meantime, have you tried using a different font for your
file listings, such as a fixed-width one?  I know that, at least for
the \tt font in TeX, the dash ligatures don't exist, so you wouldn't
have this problem.
