Re: [SOLVED] unable to read font `(null)'

What was really weird was I got an error for an app that was not 'installed' in the Applications folder

Re: unable to read font `(null)'

Prior to my original post I Googled and indications were that my error was caused by a bug introduced at an earlier update. Are you sure that this identified bug is not the cause of my problem?
