#9 while loop in MWMessage() spins forever


The MWMessage() function in MsgWindows.c has
a while loop that can sometimes never end.

    Visual inspection of the loop shows nothing of interest
    offhand. Have corrected a few issues with DShadow
    regarding something, but none that should cause this
    bug. If someone notices that their window is not
    updating for some reason. Make sure so get a stack
    trace using Macsbug. We really want to nail this down.

    Fixed the age-old bug that caused ShadowIRC to "randomly"
    freeze in MWMessage(). Turns out that new prefs were having
    mainPrefs->colorMethod = cmNone. But MWMessage() expected it
    to be either cmIrcle or cmMIRC. So the bug gets triggered
    when someone never went to the Text prefs panel, which sets
    colorMethod to a valid value. Mad props to GZ for being able
    to reproduce the bug with a debugger. [SF #509083]
