If you open two TEditMenus on two different TEdit windows, there is only one margin bar.  This means if I change the margin bar for one TEdit window, the margin bar in the other TEdit window changes its setting as well (since they obviously point to the same Lisp object).'
This is very, very bad news and should be changed tuit suite.  TEdit windows are (conceptually) independent editors.  It causes the user much confusion and frustration to have this little element of non-independence stuck in there.'
