This message comes from xdvipdfmx if it encounters an error of some  
kind and is unable to continue generating the pdf. You're getting it  
with the latest xetex because it now uses xdvipdfmx by default, and  
apparently that can't handle your document. :-(

Running "xelatex -no-pdf testart.tex" followed by "xdvipdfmx -vv  
testart.xdv" may give some clues, as xdvipdfmx with the -vv option  
will report its progress so you might see where it dies.

What format are your Lucida Bright fonts? Are you perhaps using an  
old set of "classic-style" LWFN PostScript fonts and an accompanying  
suitcase of bitmaps? I haven't tried any such fonts lately but it  
could be that xdvipdfmx doesn't handle them; looking into this is on  
my "to do" list, but I haven't got to it yet.

If you run xelatex with the option  -output-driver=xdv2pdf  it should  
revert to 0.996-style behavior, but this is only a workaround, not a  
proper explanation/solution.
