If user tool writes a line that is longer then 2058 characters to the Output Window then invoking "Copy Content" in Output Window context menu causes CE to crash immediately.

How to reproduce:

I did it with Tcl shell. I have ActiveTcl installed but it probably can be reproduced with any other language.

1. Configure User Tools with:
Menu text: tclsh
Command: c:\\Tcl\\bin\\tclsh.exe
Arguement: $(FileName)
Initial Dir: $(FileDir)
Capture Output: Checked
Save before execute: Checked

2. Create sample code:
# This code prints 2059 i chars

set c 2059
set i 0
while {$i <= $c} {
incr i
puts -nonewline i

3. Copy Content of Output window

Right click in the Output Window
and select Copy Content.
CE should crash.

NOTE: If to change c to 2058 in the
above code this option works fine.
