I make my edits in notepad++ then go to the text IDE and compile it.. it detects which files changed and re-compiles those.. it normally works fine, but now I am always getting this.  I restart the text IDE and compile it and run it and it's fine.. no problems, I make even a minor change, and try to re-compile it and bam I get this access violation error.  Does anyone know what this error actually means or how to track it down?

Is this with a recent trunk? I have started seeing this recently; an 
interface change in one unit causes a crash when compiling another unit. 
The workaround is to force recompilation of everything, which I do by 
deleting all the compiled files for the program. It is tricky to report 
as a bug, as it is intermittent, and I have only seen it on a large program.
