Sorry! I was too fast!

Actually it's not the Safari update and reboot, but the font I used! Or the fonts management system in Mac OS X – see below!

Since I can't really work with NS Emacs.app because copy&paste does not work at all, I decided to try to find all available mono-spaced fonts and see how they look (the look is independent from whether I can read or not). For this I did not try the "original" font again, but a new one as first test instance. Since I then walked through all the fonts I came again to

-apple-Latin_Modern_Mono_Light-medium-normal-normal-*-9-*-*-*-m-0- iso10646-1

(It has an accompanying condensed variant in another font family, - apple-Latin_Modern_Mono_Light_Cond-medium-normal-condensed-*-9-*-*-*- m-0-iso10646-1, which works well – besides the fact that it's not useful as an Emacs font. Its regular variant -apple-Latin_Modern_Mono- medium-normal-normal-*-9-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1, again in a different font family, works well as well, despite the fact that Font Book marks faultily one member as a duplicate.) Linotype FontExplorer X (version 1.2.3) and Apple's Font Book (version 2.1) characterise this "faulty" font as:

        PostScript name LMMonoLt10-Regular
        Full name       LMMonoLt10-Regular
        Family          Latin Modern Mono Light
        Style           10 Regular
        Kind            OpenType PostScript
Language Albanian, Basque, Catalan, Cornish, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Maltese, Manx, Norwegian Bokmål, Norwegian Nynorsk, Oromo, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, Vietnamese, Welsh
        Version Version 2.004;PS 2.004;hotconv 1.0.49;makeotf.lib2.0.14853
Location /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/lm/ lmmonolt10-regular.otf
        Unique name     2.004;UKWN;LMMonoLt10-Regular

        784 glyphs

Apple's Font Book annotates *faultily* the Oblique variant as being a duplicate. This circumstance does cause errors in XeTeX typesetting, one stage using font properties from one member, the other stage using font properties from another member. Cleaning the dirty font caches involves a reboot following. I'd like to wait for this action a few weeks, until the end of month or arrival of a new security update...
