Thanks for forwarding Andreas's reply.
The font problem is formally on mantis as #6571
A lot of the trouble starts in the Preferences. The
smallland stuff is coded by fearless designers (as in
full speed ahead. Damn the system crashes.)
It calls for a review and a refactoring.
>From Andreas's comments I wonder if there might be a
platform related method related to the crash. Find the
senders of any of the strike font names and look for
Win32 stuff. Andreas might be lucky enough to be using
On a separate thought:
The lack of versions in 7122 and 3.9 is a great
hinderence in finding fixes. The obvious tests of
reverting and seeing if the problems go away is not
possible. If things get worse you might consider
getting a version made with all changes from as early
as possible (I suspect that means 6665 or something
later.) Audit trails are important to a bug tracker.
Thats all I can think of for now.
Yours in curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
