Yes, I also got several times a crash similar to yours. But now I have
prepared the new version (0.0.20071110-1) of FontForge package for
Debian and with this new version I am not able to reproduce such the
crash. So, I consider that this bug will be closed on the next upload.

New package can be found on my apt repository at

Christian, could you please upload this?

Best wishes,
