sd_ibmtts crashes

Hi.  The problem of certain strings crashing ViaVoice has been known since I 
first used the Windows
version in the 1990's.  I know there should be a file around with a list of the 
strings known to cause a crash.  
In Windows, I believe most of them have been fixed.  Unfortunately, ViaVoice 
has't been updated for
Linux in almost a decade.

I would suggest you try to find the file of known strings and code around them 
in the speech-dispatcher module.
