Excellent, that's a good starting point for debuuging! So I guess all
I have to try to reproduce the bug is to specify a font I don't have
with fl_set_font_name(). If that's the case it shouldn't be too dif-
ficult to find what's going wrong;-)

Of course, that's a bug that need to be fixed - a library should
never, ever crash in such situations;-) Thanks for all the help
so far, I will let you know when I found the bug or, if necessary,
ask for some extra help!
