Well, it doesn't crash Mac OS X's pdf object (not in TeXshop when
processed, nor in Preview.app)
It also doesn't crash Acrobat Reader 5 in Mac OS X ``There was an error
processing a page. Wrong operand type.'' which perhaps is helpful?
Adobe Reader 6 initially doesn't complain, but then can't re-draw the
text if one scrolls it off, then back. Closing and re-opening the file
gets on a ``Wrong operand type.'' message.
