This is a bug in nedit. It boils down to:

#include <string.h>
#include <limits.h>

static unsigned char Default_Delimiters[UCHAR_MAX] = {0};

int main() {
  memset(Default_Delimiters, 0, 256);

The memset will overrun Default_Delimiters by one byte. OS X enables checking
of memset bounds, in this case it only sees the size of Default_Delimiters
through inlining at -O2 though.

You can either patch nedit or compile with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=0, which disables
memset checking.
