Bug fix for potential loss of file edits

Wing IDE Support
We've just released a fix for a bug in Wing IDE 2.0.3 that can cause
modified files to be reread from disk when split editors are joined into
a single editor.  When the file is reread from disk, any changes made in
the IDE are lost.  We encourage everyone using 2.0.3 to apply this patch.

The patch is available from the 2.0.3 patch page at:

   http://wingware.com/downloads/wingide/2.0.3/patches

To install, unpack the patch into your Wing IDE installation directory
or your Wing settings directory, using WinZip, tar, or similar tool. In
WinZip, make sure you leave the Use Folder Names option checked so that
files are placed correctly in the hierarchy.

Might you say a bit more about how to install these patches on MacOS X?
I'm guessing the top-level unpacked directory ("patches") should go into
WingIDE/Contents/MacOS. But it's only a guess. (I did look in the
manual, by the way, but didn't find the word "patch" in the contents and
didn't look further).

On OS X, they either go in Wing IDE.app/Contents/MacOS or in
~/.wingide2.  In the finder, you can bring up the context menu for the
Wing IDE application and select 'Show Package Contents' to display the
directories inside the application.  Alternatively, you can use tar in a
terminal window to unpack the patch.

On all platforms, the pathnames of the Wing IDE install directory and
the user settings directory are available in the about box.

Thank you very much. I was reluctant to use ~/.wingide2 because I was
afraid of future versions of WingIDE loading inappropriate patches. But
after unpacking one I realized my fears were groundless -- due to your
sensible directory layout.

One minor suggestion: as you load each patch please consider noting the
fact in the Messages window. I realize (after some hunting around) that
you list them in About WingIDE... but Messages is a logical place to
note startup actions and is likely to be the first place many folks look.

Thanks again for the patches and the install info.

I probably mentioned -- what we really need is a way to install patches
from Wing w/o doing it manually...

Good point, thanks for the suggestion.
