<> Truth be told, I thought that one could end the process for the do-file editor in the Windows Task Manager separately from the main process. I remember overhearing a conversation which said that Stata, the Viewer and the do-file editor are separate processes. But when I try to kill the endless loop that this thread is about, Stata itself also goes down. So I have to eat my words on this not being a crash...

I would still insist it is not a crash, as Stata looks busy to me instead of shutting down without prior warning. Am I correct that [GSW] does not describe the tickboxes in the "replace" dialog box, but merely mentions its existence? Is there another entry for it anywhere else?
