OTOH, the people who wrote Graphite are still there, and if the graphite 
engine is crashing, they may be able to help pinpoint the problem and 
suggest a fix that could be applied to the library xetex is using, 
and/or a way to work around the problem in your font.

Do *any* graphite fonts work in the current TL xetex builds? They 
certainly used to, but it's not something I've tried any time recently; 
maybe the integration has been broken somehow.
