"widgets/EditBox/White" should be "widgets/White.conf".

The code gets into an endless loop trying to read from a folder instead of a text file.

TGUI error: Failed to parse value for NormalImage_L in section EditBox in widgets/White.conf.

This might be caused when the images can't be loaded.
Make sure that the file given by the value of NormalImage_L ("Button/White/Normal.png" I guess) exists.
The path is relative from the config file (so the Button folder has to be in the same folder as White.conf).

I guess the errors could be more clear. I'll change that later today.
