I've spent some time trying to reproduce this but have not managed. I picked a really large file to save so the spell-checker takes a while to run. Textadept always blocks until the spell checking is done, so subsequent calls to reset() do not seem to trigger any race conditions. I've also queued up a reset() call while Textadept is blocked, but that didn't cause anything bad either.

Until you manage to find another way to trigger the crash, I'm stuck :(
