Original bug here:

XS 5.0 (build 784), OSX

When an F# script has exactly the content

let x = 2

where the "let x = 2" occurs on the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 8th or 10th line (no others!) then the line is not syntax-highlighted correctly (it is all monochrome).

Here's a failing test for it, to put in SyntaxHighlightingTests.cs, 

public void TestFSharpLineBug ()
   TestOutput ("\n\n\nlet x = 2",
   "<span foreground=\"#009695\">let </span><span foreground=\"#444444\">x = </span><span foreground=\"#F57D00\">2</span>",

Thanks for providing a unit test - that really speeds up fixing bugs :)
