Stephen, I must admit I have really no idea, *but *could this be somehow
related to the [Apple ATS] bug discovered by the Textures guys here??

[Of course, this is not quite your problem (OT font and all), but if there
really is a 64-bit ATS bug…? Also, the Textures Mailing List user that
raised the issue in the first place reported that this affected his MacBook,
but not his Mac Pro.]
