<sigh> Its another non-deterministic bug it seems. For me under Windows the bug
exhibits without -c .setpdfwrite, or at least I get a crash. However, under the
debugger it won't crash either way.

I think this may be a memory issue, which is why it doesn't apparently exhibit
on 64-bit machines and, for me, disappears when run under a debugger. The memory
arena is sufficiently different that whatever causes the problem stamps on
something unimportant.

Its also (probably) a clue that the stack trace shows the crash in
gs_gc_reclaim, and Ralph's debug build shows memory chunk problems.
