#211 Multiline Tabbar kills SciTE

SciTE (625)

When multiline Tabs are on
and tabbar is visible
and hide one if false (always show the tabs)

then that's the configuration I like

now when you open ONE file with a long name like
and make the whole window smaller than the name in the
tab my SciTE windows version (i did not test it in
my linux...) just dies...

I hope that's enough info to reproduce the bug!

    Doesn't reproduce for me on Windows 2000 with the exact file
    name given.

    did you try to use my SciTEGlobal.properties
    (the options mentioned in the text are not the only options
    you have to set...)

    OK, it looks like the TCM_GETROWCOUNT call crashes when the
    tab is sized too narrow to show its text. You should turn
    off the multiline option. I won't be debugging this further
    but if anyone else wants to work on this and find a
    workaround, please do.

    Tab bar size calculation simplified in release 2.22 and no longer calls TCM_GETROWCOUNT. Closing as doesn't occur on current versions of Windows.
