Also, about 3/4 a year ago, it was suggested that the font used in "Logs & others" may be chosen automatically by wx and my findings is that it changes depending on the OS's defined locale.  Had anything changed to where I could actually change it to Courier New (which can be configured in the Editor settings)?

What do you mean by hang (crash to desktop or the UI is unresponsive)? Which version is doing this?
Can you attach a debugger and show backtrace for all threads of a hanged process? It might give us a clue which function/dll is doing this.

ThreadSearch unloading crash is known, I've fixing it but I've god distracted... I will do it soon.

First time I hear about this I think. Remote desktop or normal desktop? Does it happen with the previous night builds?

Nope you can only change the size of the font...

I am now in the position to make a RDP connection between two windows pc and debug this issue. Can you open a Ticket on SF and describe the exact steps to reproduce the crashes (with wxWidgets versions and codeblocks versions)? Please describe in detail, because i never used RDP (is it something like X forwarding?) on windows. It is quite difficult to read trough all the forum posts and it would be nice to have all information in one Ticket.... Then i can try to fix this. Thank you for your patience.

UI hangs indefinitely (possibly forever) and Windows says it isn't responding.  I could attach a debugger on the release made here but as per my previous posts, my version of MinGW is incapable of building from source so I can't build with debugging symbols and my backtrace may be useless to you.

I didn't use the previous couple nightly builds much because of the RDP problems, but the selected text missing background coloration issue was when launching and using C::B in person.  Speaking of the RDP issue, my C::B session I left running crashed when I RDP'd into the machine today.  Relaunching this nightly within an RDP session results in the same assertion failures that I can continue past, and at least during this session I'm not seeing the selected text coloration bug.  I'll have to see what happens when I use it again in person later.

I created a ticket:
https://sourceforge.net/p/codeblocks/tickets/924/
Please let me know if you need any more information.  It should mostly just involve enabling Remote Desktop connections on the computer from which you'll launch C::B, and connecting to it from another Windows machine.

Thank you both for your help.

Edit:  The hanging issue might not be limited to CodeBlocks.  Multiple applications seem to be experiencing some kind of bug when ANY keypress causes the program to hang.  I don't know what would have changed to cause this.  My antivirus had an update so I installed that and rebooted, but no luck yet.

Edit 2:  The keypress hanging bug extends to various older programs that presumably use older GUI frameworks/libraries, including C::B 17.12, an old version of VirtualDub, my GUI application developed with Allegro 4, DYNDNS's update client program and probably many others.  I don't know if there was an OS or AV update that bricked this or what.

Edit 3:  The hanging programs issue turned out to be a problem with bttray.exe (Bluetooth driver).  Killing it stopped the hanging issue.  Now I got to figure out how to resolve that without bricking the ability to use wireless headphones...
