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 \
At this point NEdit gets busy for a couple of seconds then just exits with no messages (Ouch).
It seems 100% repeatable.
