Well, the is_solid() call was accessing an out-of-bound memory.
Could be the problem was somewhere else, anyway I just added 
an assertion there:

I was working on making gnash more robust. Intentionally feeding the parser
with arbitrarily scrambled input.

Please remind me (maybe add a task in the tracker for this?).

But can reference the style (0 || 1) so we need a document,
ensure, handle that (not just in AGG, but in the core and in
any renderer). Btw, i'm not sure gnash succeeds in hitTests
with glyphs.. I wonder if the root cause is the same...
(remember point_test_local in shape_character_def ?)

This is free software, nothing prevents you from doing it! :)
