Hmm, that surprising. It's Iyonix with 5.19 (06-May-2013) here but there
is no problem when selecting text in TaskWindow mode.

Thanks, but as I suspected there's not much useful data in there. The
reason is that 'Illegal window handle' is an error from the WIMP. When
the aborts occurs the CPU is executing a WIMP SWI, so it's outside of
the StrongED context. As a result most of the data in the StrongDump is
a bunch of nulls.

Unless I can reproduce it here it's going to be difficult to fix this.
A couple of questions to try to narrow it down:

 - Does the abort also occur if you double/triple click to select a word
   or line?

 - Did the window have input focus before starting to select text?

 - Was the TaskWindow still active? (When it's been killed to text will
   have been switched back to BaseMode.)

 - Does selecting text in any other mode produce an abort?
