I think there are 2 issues here: the presence of the value '0x0' in a field meant to contain a pointer to a face_cache struct, and what the presence of that value causes to happen.To me it seems that while almost certainly the former is an Emacs.app issue, the latter is more likely an Emacs 23.0.60 issue. I don't know for sure, since I'm not an Emacs or Emacs.app hacker.I am aware that sometimes some classes of errors are perhaps best allowed to happen and to result in catastrophic failures like segmentation faults, but in this case, were this one of my programs I'd probably consider it a bug.
If it is a bug to have 0 in that field, why would you hide the bug by avoiding a crash when it is 0?
