[XeTeX] xelatex, segmentation fault, Mac OS X 10.6.4

I'm getting a segmentation fault when I try to compile a xelatex document which compiles fine on my girlfriend's machine. Mine runs on OS X 10.6.4 while hers is on 10.5.8. I've followed Herb's advice to reinstall the combo update, safe boot, and clear all Caches; to no avail. The problem occurs with all the fonts I've tried (including Arial, Helvetica, Minion Pro, Myriad Pro...).
Does anybody have advice on how to solve this issue; or how to systematically explore the issue? At the moment, I wouldn't want to share the offending file as it's unpublished, and I cannot reproduce it with a smaller 'nonsense' file.

Thanks in advance,
