I might not be replying to this mail correctly; I cannot tell if this reply is going to a general list or not.  Sorry.

made the segfault go away?

Yes, that is what I meant.

them, but there are no doubt cases that aren't handled well.

As a TeX-person I am spoiled, I suppose.  I understand that bad fonts can have pointers that go nowhere, etc., but a seg fault did take me aback.  

As I said, I'd be happy to supply you with the file, or with whatever dump might be useful, if that would help iron out a bug.

Thanks for the software; it is great.
