#57 save on deactivate misses most files

SciTE (625)

The Save on Deactivate feature apparently tries to
save only the current file. It would seem that the
whole point of this feature is that the programmer
wants to make sure when he switches to another
window that all files are saved, so I think this is a bug.

Running SciTE 1.46 on Windows 98 SE.

    I believe the support for this is broken in v1.57, although it
    seems to work in v1.56. With save.on.deactivate=1 and
    check.if.already.open=1 I get the following error. (I can
    create a new bug report if you wish, or recreate using
    scite.exe instead of sc1.exe).

    SC1 caused an invalid page fault in
    module SC1.EXE at 0167:0040109e.

    I have seen a crashing bug somewhat similar to this but it
    is not simply a matter of turning on save.on.deactivate and
    check.if.already.open and getting crashes. I haven't seen it
    again and it woul be good to have a consistently
    reproducible case.
