I recently installed eric3 because it seems really nice but I keep getting an exception when the Preferences Dialog tries to save changes...

Traceback (most recent call last): 
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/UI/UserInterface.py", line 1673, in handlePreferences 
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/Preferences/PreferencesDialog.py", line 844, in setPreferences 
NotImplementedError: QextScintillaLexer.language() is abstract and must be overridden
I checked the code in the file on line 844:

# write the lexer styles to disk 
       for lexer in self.lexers.values(): 
           lexer.writeSettings(Preferences.Prefs.settings, "/eric3/Scintilla")
After further investigation I found out that the class PreferencesLexer does implement QextScintillaLexer.language():

def language(self): 
       Public method to get the lexers programming language. 

       @return language 
       return self.language
So... I don't know what the problem is

I hope someone knows the solution, thanks in advance
