I've added a warning on the wiki about it.

Benoít rejected it as a bug, asked why would i set highlighting to gambas
and expect no gambas highlighting?
Simple answer being that i *did* expect gambas highlighting but didn't
expect "highlighting" to do "text re-formatting"
I didn't expect to spend 4.5 hours fixing a bash script that the so called
"highlighting" ruined either.

as far as i'm concerned for my Text Editor app the "Highlight" option
"gambas" has to be removed as it's dangerous.
