This happened while opening a file using nc (with nedit -server
already running). Sorry--no reliable way to reproduce it.

    Does it happen often or was it just once?

    I've only seen that error message once, though nedit 5.5 has
    occasionally crashed on me (maybe 1 time in a month of heavy use).
    Unfortunately, I do not always start the server from the command line,
    so I don't always see an error message (is there somewhere else it
    gets written?). I'll try to remember to start from the command line. I don't
    think it happened in 5.0-5.4, but I'm not sure.

    Do you mean that NEdit also crashed when you saw the error
    message?
    Do you use tabs?

    If you don't start NEdit from the command line, you may find
    error messages in ~/.xsession-errors. That file gets erased
    each time you log in, though.

    If it would crash again, please try to describe the last few
    actions that you performed.
