    /var/log/messages also shows
        gs[2715]: segfault at 4 ip 03208936 sp bfada7a0 error 4

How reproducible:
    always with attached .ps file.
    no segfault with other .ps files.

Steps to Reproduce:
    1. in X windows, run
        gs 080613.gxpath2.c:gx_path_is_void.core.dump.ps
Actual results:

            Segmentation fault

Expected results:
