Hmmm...I'll have to check at least one other multilanguage file. I'll
report back here with my results.

I'm fairly sure I downloaded the latest scintillua, applied them to
TA's original 3.3 source code, then compiled. I have both the TA with
the modified scintillua and the original 3.3 available on my laptop
(in separate folders) so I'll check both.

Just in case I've used the wrong method, what's the recommended way of
compiling TA from source? When I have cloned the hg repo, I've found
that there's only a sub-set of the source code contained. I usually
grab the source from elsewhere, add the updated files (obtained via hg
repo) and compile the lot.
