Latest helpful bug report!

In an attempt at a sort of "un-named and shamed" effort, here is the latest bug report for PN (which version is anyone's guess). Needless to say I can't reproduce the error:

When open a file and press backspace (first of all)
PNotepad crashes.

Can anyone reproduce this? I can't contact the author for any more information because they were anonymous. The bug has been set to pending in sourceforge and unless I hear otherwise it will be marked as closed. Sometimes it seems a shame that sourceforge allows anonymous reports - but then some useful ones do come in that way.

Update: I now have enough information to reproduce the bug (from the comments). Thanks.

I can reproduce following backspace crash.
When I load this file http://www.luedin.com/smp.c click on the bottom of the editor so that the cursor jumps to the last line, if I then click backspace PN hangs....
I used and Win2k.

Tried Markus' post above, works for me. WIN XP.

Did the following.

1. Copied text at link above
2. Pasted text
3. Click at bottom where there are no lines.
4. Clicked backspace

I did not have a highlighter chosen nor was the file saved.

Thanks for the information, I can reproduce the bug and will work on fixing it. I'll transfer this information to the sourceforge bug.
