O.S. Windows 8.1 64bit

Using either the 'Document->Replace Tab with Spaces' or the 'Search->Replace' on a very long line of 200+ tab separated words will hang the application.

Steps

Load File
Select Line
Document->Tab with Spaces

or

Ctrl + H
Search for \t
Replace with ' '
Using Regular expression checked
Replace all open
Close dialog checked
Button 'In Selection' Clicked

This only occurs on the windows version of the latest download. The openSUSE version, 1.23.1, works.

Great little editor. Quickly becoming my favorite.

File is attached.

    The package was the full installer version. No previous version installed.

    Problem does not occur with the windows 1.23 version. Just checked.

    Works on 1.24.1 Linux, must be windows specific.

    Note the two methods use different code paths, not sure what is common.

    Should add, not sure any of the devs have the ability to test on windows 8 so there is no guarantee there are no problems with it.

    Also the version of GTK bundled (2.16) is no longer maintained, so it may not be tested on Windows 8.
