In lexers/lexer.lua around line 827 is where the lexer checks for and
loads a color theme. Try putting a '_G.print' statement in there to
find anything abnormal. 'color_theme' should be set as the
'lexer.lua.color.theme' property by Scintilla. It sounds like it is
not set. This may be the case if you're using a Scintilla pre-color
theme capable. You can get a 'scintilla-st.patch' from scite-st SVN.
src/scintilla-st.patch). It should be applied to the latest Scintilla
release, not CVS.
