Not sure about this; I'm about to update to the most recent TL version to see if I can reproduce it.

> As mentioned three weeks ago there is one font I could determine which is provoking crashes every time: URW:GaramondNo8-Ita:2001, a TrueType font from the urwfonts-1.41 archive (having it since many years). You can find it here: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/support/ghostscript/AFPL/GhostPCL/.

I'm at the conference at the moment so I can't check myself; can anyone reproduce this problem with this font?
