I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit and its distribution of SciTE. The system is up to date and SciTE is at 3.0.2.
Today I encounter the following error as I start SciTE (either from the left panel or the shell): "File '/home/pfusik/' is -1 bytes long, larger than the 50000000 bytes limit set in the properties. Do you still want to open it?"
When I select 'Yes', it seems to function properly.
When I select 'No', there are no tabs and the menus are uninitialized ("Tool0", "Tool1", etc). It gets back to normal when I press Ctrl+N.
I don't recall doing any SciTE configuration edits recently. I suspect it's caused by a library update.
