I've had this happen a few times and finally isolated the steps and verified that it's only with syntax highlighting on.
I was editing help.c from the NEdit sources:
Inside the large strings that make up the help text, put the cursor at the end of a line that looks like:

other stuff here\n\ \n\ other stuff here \

make it look like this:

other stuff here\n\ \n\ \n\ \ other stuff here \

Now select the line (including the linefeed "triple click") that is just a single \ Delete it.
At this point NEdit gets busy for a couple of seconds then just exits with no messages (Ouch).
It seems 100% repeatable.

    I'm guessing that this in 5.1.1 as well as the beta, and am
    categorizing it as so. Please respond if this isn't the
    case.

    This seems to be fixed in the current 5.2 dev build.

    Changed to "fixed". I'm leaving this open at a lower
    priority, as it would be nice to figure out who fixed it.
    If anyone did, please speak up!

    This was fixed by Mark around Feb 21, 2001. The discussion
    of it can be found in the archives.
