No need to rebuild JadeTeX: after you run `jade` on your file, open
the .tex file up in an editor, and add the following line near the


This is set to a default of "1" in jadetex.dtx, which causes JadeTeX
to *always* use \cleardoublepage.  Setting this to "0" in your
document causes JadeTeX to do a \clearpage, in that document only.
(Note that every time you rebuild the .tex file with Jade, you'll have
to add that magic line again.)

I hope this bug is fixed soon. 8-(

In the meantime, if you find the above fix cumbersome or confusing, I
could write you a trivial Perl script which adds the line, then runs
`jadetex`.  Let me know.
