Hi Peter,

The segfault did occur with the latest XeTeX version 0.9997.4.

Updating from 0.9997.3 to 0.9997.4 changed it from segfaulting
immediately when loading unciode-math to segfaulting only in
certain situation, depending on what kind of formulas you typeset.

Ubuntu 10.4 ships with fontconfig-2.8 rather than fontconfig-2.7.x. 
Could there be compatibility issues with that?
Would it be better to use a static version of libfontconfig?

Regards, Ulrik

P.S: As I wrote earlier, my self-compiled version did not segfault 
when compiled on Ubuntu 10.4, but it did not work correctly either.
As for the latter, I suspect another issue which may be unrelated
to the segfaults.
