#1503 Scite opens infinite dialog boxes when trying to save a file


This happens on two occasions: when trying to save to a directory with non ascii characters like the block character as seen in the image or when saving to a system folder or one that the user does not have ownership.
The dialog boxes kept popping up until the comp started to hang. I managed to close about 20 of them and kill scite with powershell.

    Hi, again. I found the cause of the problem. I had earlier installed a SciTE patch from a russian site http://scite.ruteam.ru/scite/sborki/scite-ru-board and installed Scite 3.2.5 over it. I only had to uninstall scite again and then install it again. I'm sure this time you'll get the same result. Although SciTe only displays the contents of the file when the file is dragged to it or opened from the menu. It still doesn't display the contents when I use the 'Open with Scite' option. At least it works.
    Hail SciTE!!!!

    Forget what I said earlier, I have really found the cause of the problem this time. Please try it.
    Uncomment the #save.on.timer=20 option then try to save a file that you do not have permissions(e.g the ones in system32) or the original dummy_file.txt(don't open it in scite or drag it, open it from the context menu in explorer). You should get the many dialogs. Give it a try, please.
