Hi all,

ok, it is broken since this commit:

http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb/?p=pgadmin3.git;a=patch;h=b0ecbbca7f77c0f07cff67bba3d2bca28954a1e2

-   EVT_STC_UPDATEUI(-1,  ctlSQLBox::OnPositionStc)
+   EVT_STC_PAINTED(-1,  ctlSQLBox::OnPositionStc)

It appears that in previous version of scintilla, there existed a 
SCN_POSCHANGED event, which then got obsolete and replaced by 
SCN_UPDATEUI, and probably that is why the name 'OnPositionStc' was 
chosen for the handler. So linking OnPositionStc() to STC_UPDATEUI was 
correct and in accordance with scintilla's manual.
However the change from EVT_STC_UPDATEUI to EVT_STC_PAINTED was 
incorrect. These events are not quite equivalent. EVT_STC_PAINTED has a 
somewhat different purpose.

I've checked, reverting back to EVT_STC_UPDATEUI indeed fixed CPU load 
and lockup issues on windows. See also
http://www.scintilla.org/ScintillaDoc.html#SCN_PAINTED
http://www.scintilla.org/ScintillaDoc.html#SCN_UPDATEUI
http://www.scintilla.org/ScintillaHistory.html
http://web.mit.edu/jhawk/mnt/spo/sandbox/punya/anjuta-1.2.3/doc/ScintillaDoc.html  (-- this is some older document with
amore detailed explanation of 
 
SCN_UPDATEUI)

Some relevant excerptions:

"SCN_PAINTED: is to update some _other_ widgets based on a change."

"SCN_POSCHANGED: notification is deprecated as it was causing confusion. 
Use SCN_UPDATEUI instead."

"SCN_UPDATEUI, SCN_CHECKBRACE:
Either the text or styling [...] common use is to check whether the 
caret is next to a brace and set highlights on this brace and its 
corresponding matching brace."

So for me this all sounds clear sufficiently. I'll stick with 
EVT_STC_UPDATEUI and I can rebuild it myself if I have to. Whether fix 
git respectively or not is up to maintainers now.


Thank you,
Nikolai
