It's perfectly OK to do that (since there is no public bug tracker for Aeolus).
Sorry for not responding earlier to your message - it arrived at a moment when
I was already multitasking over my capabilities...

I can't reproduce this. And the error occurs quite deep into libfreetype, itself
called from libXft (i.e. at a point one could assume those libs have already
checked function arguments).

Could you try to obtain the function argements at these points:

> #7  0x00000039a840e7ff in X_textip::textwidth(int, int) () from 

If these ar OK, the problem must be within libXft or libfreetype.

It was suggested to remove you presets file - this is a good thing
to try first.
