It happens after I have been editing a file for some time. AFAICR it 
has only happened with one file, the one that I keep my Spanish 
revision notes in.

The file is  about 5000 lines, uses folds and has a custom Modefile. 
Where it goes wrong is in the section that begins ==>Vocabulario.
This a glossary of about 1500 Spanish words, one per line, that I have 
had to look up. When I want to add a new word I usually select the 
vertical scroll slider and drag it down to approximately where I want 
to insert the new entry. At this point it sometimes aborts.

So far it has only happened on the Iyonix. I appreciate that it is 
almost impossible to debug at present but I thought it worthwhile 
posting the report to see if it was happening to others.

1920x1080 16 million - standard System font.

In case it is useful I have put the file and modefile at:-
