Yes.  But you are running an old version of jadetex.

I think this has been improved in later version of jadetex.  But you
need to use openjade to use the improved jadetex.

We use a patched version of jadetex 2.20 and openjade 1.3.  This is a
pretty good combination.  Look at for
the patches to jadetex/openjade.  I recommend using them!
