Memory access error with Japanese text-entry in built-in editor

I have been using version 3.6.5 of WinSCP.

Periodically, when typing Japanese in the text editor the application will crash with multiple memory access error popups.

When it does not crash, I can write and save the text successfully so it seems it's fundamentally able to handle Japanese text. Perhaps you are only allocating enough room for ascii strings but checking your buffer based on the character count assuming single-byte characters?

Either way, great application!

Thank you,
Chris Williams

What text editor do you use? Internal or external?

The internal editor. External editors (notepad, Visual Studio, etc.) work without issue--it's just faster to edit in the internal editor.

Unfortunatelly I haven't made the editor. Is is component of Borland's VCL library. So I do not know how it works and I do not dare to make modifications into it. I'll try to look for some patch.
