T2 when used also hard-crashes in Windows (Win7 Ultimate). But the behavior is
strange-- sometimes it doesn't crash for the first 4 out of 5 runs (for
example), sometimes on the first run-- then with a Windows message "... a memory
access violation has occured at ..."

Otherwise, I've run approximately 40 of my own scenes-- with arrays,
user-defined functions, and other text objects in the mix-- and everything works
fine, so far. But my own text objects are of this form...

internal 1 "my text here"

.....rather than
ttf "arielbd.ttf"
