There's a patch available for that and a number of other possible=20
crashes caused by the same commonly used code.  The first one listed here
will fix it:

Wing current gets confused in various cases and quits when it shouldn't.
Also when switching projects if no Help view is open it quits after
closing the old project, and in various other cases.  Fixed in our sources
but we didn't release a patch.  We'll be doing another beta as soon as we
make it through our list of serious bugs.

On our list and I think already fixed in our sources.

Hmm, possibly an I18N bug where we're getting confused about position
in a file w/ non-ascii chars.  Or a buffer confusion (we've had some
reports of Wing managing to get two buffers open into the same file,
so some views of the file show an unedited version and another shows
edits).  Thanks for reporting this.

A patch for this also exists, on the above-listed patches page.

Yes, this is annoying but alas not yet fixed...
