Hi all:

The problem I'm having is loading polyglossia and later using custom 
headers (at least for the memoir class).

As Jonathan suggested, it might have

I end up with a bunch of error messages and some strange output, e.g.: 
on the half-title page, there are 2 stray words: ``latin latin'' at the 
top of the page as well as the word ``latin'' at the beginning of the ToC.

Lars Davies suggested:

Unfortunately, it doesn't make any difference for me. I've tried loading

\usepackage[nolocalmarks, latin]{polyglossia}

as well as


I'm using MacTeX2008, with polyglossia 2008/07/26 v1.0.1 and memoir.cls 
2009/02/06 v1.6180339e.

Any ideas?
