If you have gdb installed (the GNU debugger), I would recommend downloading a nightly build, which has debug symbols built-in, opening a terminal and running `gdb textadept`, followed by `r`. Textadept will run normally and try hard to induce a crash. When you do, type `bt` in the terminal and report the backtrace to me.
