I can't get it to crash now. This is with Xquartz 1.3.0-apple4 that
Jeremy release earlier this evening that was Fink compatible. This
version shows /System/Library/Fonts and /Library/Fonts by default in
However, if I go back to the Xquartz 1.3 that was released on
20071201 (I believe it was the one included in the
X11-2.1.0.pkg...I'm losing track, sigh), then Xquartz crashes, but
before I can see the crash, the entire system hangs. Note, this
version does NOT have the /System/Library/Fonts and /Library/Fonts
paths in "xset q" by default.
So, it appears something got fixed in the later version that works
better with adding fonts to the server.
