   Scintilla should not crash from a simple reentrance although it may if
reentered from multiple real (OS) threads. While Scintilla does not allow
some forms of reentrance (such as changing the text during a change text
notification) these should fail rather than cause a crash and I'd be
interested in fixing the problems if you can give me some reproducible
cases.
