Application crash / unresponsive with find/replace

  • Notepad++ 7.5+ becomes unresponsive when doing a find/replace on many lines. The files Ive been processing are ~400k lines. I disabled automatic backups based on an issue that I was made aware of by a developer a couple of years ago. Windows 10 event viewer shows an application hang (AppHangTransient)

    What kind of files are modified?
    Are plugins installed which may interfere ?
    Is a lexer, syntax highlighting active?
    Do you search/replace unicode text?
    Is this reproducible always? If yes, can you share the file?
