Hello everyone again.

Just a strange behavior which I would like to report. It is no big 
deal, but I just wonder if it known or newly found by me when 
learning to use Plain XeTeX with some old but very nice fonts 
(KuenstlerScript in my OS 9 System folder).

The first run give the following error, but after the second run all 
is well. Sounds like having to run LaTeX twice...

With my best,
