This build got 86 downloads and I saw a total of 2 crashes from that 
build, one was opening the HTML output window and the other was closing 
it. I assume that this was from people who had manually closed the HTML 
output window (for which I did not disable re-use).

I have now disabled re-use of HTML output windows that are closed and 
pushed that as nightly build beta 5.3.

There is still the theoretical case where a user closes an output window 
and then manually opens it, here we still re-use the window, so a crash 
can still happen (if my thesis is correct); however, this should be rare 
so it should be possible to get the thesis verified even without 
including this case.
