Thanks for the bug report guys, and thanks for the dump, David.

The validation string for the writable icon is incorrect. It's set to:
'R2;Pptr_write;Ktan' this needs to be: 'R2;Pptr_write;Kta'. Otherwise
the keypress will be sent to StrongED which tries to work out what
functions to execute but there's no text associated with the dbox. This
means a pointer of -1 will be used, okay on ARMv5 but not on ARMv7.
