[XeTeX] XeTeX segmentation faults

I have had XeTeX installed for a while. Yesterday I used version 0.80 
to see how my LaTex file would look in Hoefler. It worked fine. Today 
when I tried it again, I suddenly started getting segmentation faults.

I upgraded to 0.82, and still have the same error.

So I thought I would test the sample files:

$ xelatex test.ltx
This is XeTeXk, Version 3.14159-2.1-0.82 (Web2C 7.5.2)
  %&-line parsing enabled.
entering extended mode
LaTeX2e <2001/06/01>
Babel <v3.7h> and hyphenation patterns for american, british, 
nohyphenation, lo
Document Class: article 2001/04/21 v1.4e Standard LaTeX document class
(./test.aux)Segmentation fault

I get similar results for the Arabic, Hindi, and most other examples.

For some reason, transforms.tex and CM-test.tex work just fine.

Any clues on what to do?
