VC++ 2008 link crash

I am getting the following crash in VC++2008:

Linking... Embedding manifest... Microsoft (R) Windows (R) Resource Compiler Version 6.0.5724.0 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved. LINK : fatal error LNK1000: Internal error during IncrBuildImage

It turns out that this a bug of a VC++ 2008 linker, see hotfix 948127 from Microsoft.

JEdit related information

jEdit is a mature programmer's text editor. It is not my favorite but it is interesting.

Key configurations I do in JEdit:
- Remove the .(dot) in the text area, do Utilities | Global Options... | Text Area and unset End of line markers.
