I'm working on a Powerbook G4 550Mhz running MacOS 10.3.5. Typesetting 
on another (newer) powerbook G4 resulted in more or less the same 

*** bad XDV file: DVI_PRE not found, b=-1
Segmentation fault

So probably the file itself is the problem. I could mail the source 
file to you if you want to try and locate the cause of it all. I can't 
make a minimal example of it though, as I don't know what the problem 
is. I prefer to mail it to another address though, as it contains the 
first 100 or so pages of my dissertation.
