Ok great. I was really in fear stefan might have changed such a
fundamental thing. But now that you checked it I am calm again ;)

This _might_ fix the problem. But there is still the open question now
that you have checked that MUIM_Setup is called, why tmprp.Font is NULL.
Because if you look at our MUIM_Setup implementation then you should
perfectly spot the initialization part right after the SuggestWindow() call:

-- cut here --
      DoMethod(_app(obj), OM_ADDMEMBER, data->SuggestWindow);

      // initialize our temporary rastport
      SetFont(&data->tmprp, data->font);
-- cut here --

so here you can see that I already added a proper initialization to the
MUIM_Setup method of TextEditor. The question is now why later on
data->tmprp.Font is NULL? Because it shouldn't be null in MUIM_Show
cause MUIM_Setup sets up the font for the temporary rastport already
because MUIM_Show is called.

So please investigate again a bit further and try to see if
data->tmprp.Font is also NULL right after the SetFont() call above and
then try to track down where exactly it might get blanked out as this
might be another problem hided in some other component of TextEditor.

No. If I am correct then the initialization done in MUIM_Setup should
already setup the temporary rastport right before a Window_Open call and
make it valid right on creation time of the TextEditor object.
