I suspect the problem has to do with font generation. I
spent two hours trying to "localize" the problem to a
specific part of the source. It seemed to be in the chapter
on fonts, but when I tried to localize it further I ran into
non-monotonicity issues: after removing a section and not
getting a crash, I replaced it and didn't get a crash though
that same source had crashed just before. I finally gave up.
I've had crashes for that file on three different systems
but it's possible there are differences between systems that 
affect this issue.
