Hmm, that looks like a GTK error (the widget toolkit Textadept uses). I haven't seen it before, and neither my Windows VM nor my Windows box has a *pagefile.sys* to trigger the problem.

I do not know what a workaround would be other than to somehow disable the pagefile. Sorry I cannot be of more help.
