Thanks for the report and detailed instructions on how to reproduce. The
bug is at the end of textadept.c's "lbuffer_delete" method.

   lL_event(L, "buffer_deleted", -1), lL_event(L, "buffer_after_switch", -1);

These events should be swapped. Recompiling Textadept after the swap seems
to fix the issue.
