Be aware that Luxi fonts DID exist among other fonts in your system, in 
the truetype font directory, since the beginning, and one of them was 
causing the crash, namely luxirb.ttf.
I sent you another copy, just to see if your fonts were somehow 
corrupted. You always get a crash when it tries to load luxirb.ttf, 
which is one of those damned Luxi fonts, no matter if it's the original 
copy coming from Suse installation, or a fresh copy sent by me. The 
crash occurs when it is executing LazFreeType package code.
Why this happens with your Suse and not with my Fedora may be related to 
some error in LazFreeType, which shows with one version of system 
libraries, and not with another, but LazFreeType developers have better 
tools than us to investigate.
