yes, I appreciate that.

I used a reduced version of the 'pav-patt.pov' for the test, with the latest (ie
10011104) alpha.  it crashes when T2 "visible":

#version 3.8;
global_settings {assumed_gamma 1}

#declare S = "abcdef";

#declare T1 = text {
  ttf "arialbd.ttf" cmap { 1,0 charset 0 }
  S
  0.001 0
  pigment { color rgb<1.0, 0.6, 0.2>*1.25 }
  no_shadow
};

#if (0)
#declare T2 = text {
  ttf "arialbd.ttf"
  S
  0.001 0
  pigment { color rgb 0.1 }
  no_shadow
};
#end


regards, jr.
