The crash has been observed happens reproducibly when SciTE.properties, SciTEDirectory.properties, and SciTEUser.properties are empty files (zero size), ex:
- SciTE starts in a directory with an empty SciTE.properties or SciTEDirectory.properties file
- One of those files is opened (while non-empty), all content deleted and it's saved
- A new SciTE.properties file is created (ex. from the explorer), and then opened in SciTE for editng.
The crash didnot happen with SciTE 3.2.0 or older
