... it affects a simple `.ds' also, as shown with an example...

Certainly.  The question is how seriously we have to take the problem,
given that we have never received a report related to this issue.
Normally, a user will notice the problem quite easily since the very
first error message directly says what the problem is (namely an
invalid name or font).  However, in conditional, automated runs it's
not that easy, as the posted log demonstrates.
