[XeTeX] segfault with xetex

For some strange reason(*), I get segmentation fault when I run "xelatex
--no-pdf file.tex" and \setromanfont has no system font.

(*) Muy guess is that I messed things when I deleted a Type1 font (I
wanted xelatex to use the TrueType original) with XeLaTeX running. But
this should not lead to segmentation fault, shouldn't it?

I attach the backtrace, just in case it helps.
