For what's worth: on the Mac, processing the file error.tex with "xelatex -no-pdf" (after commenting out the lines calling notation.sty and D.pdf) and then applying xdv2pdf to the generated XDV file yields an error message about invalid width font entries followed by a crash.

I don't know whether the fact the embedded fonts are TrueType plays any role.
