And I can confirm that testing on a 64bit f11 box using
ghostscript-8.71-6.fc11.x86_64 also succeeds for me.

Further testing on the laptop confirms that stack size was the issue.  When I
raised the stack size from the default of 8192 to 10240 (matching my default on
that 64 bit server box) the file worked with non-x11 devices.

It still crashes, though, with any of the x11 devices, even with a stacksize of
65536, eight times the default.

But not with freetype, even with large values of -r, such as -r500.

SO it is probably not worth further investigation, given that fapi is the way
forward.

But if you would like to see one of the core files, I can post one.
