Bug: Malformed input causes hang

Reported by zachriggle | December 24th, 2010 @ 08:05 AM | in 0.1 — first usable version

What I did

  1. Open a Python file
  2. Type the text shown in the screenshot, x()()()()cc\\

What I expected to happen

Nothing special.

What actually happened

Program hang, 99% CPU usage.


I was unable to reproduce this exactly, although I did get it to hang one other time in the process of typing the same text.

The screenshot shows the last \` as not having highlighting applied, which leads me to believe the hang was caused by the syntax highlighting. The screenshot was taken *after* the application stopped responding.
