Thanks for the backtrace.

Well, the fact that BIF_lorem is NULL (which it is for you) is a total
mystery to me.

BIF_lorem is a char* initialized and allocated in lorem.c, and declared
in BIF_editfont.h.

So, its value and what it points to should be available in add_lorem().

In no case, BIF_lorem should ever be NULL.

It smells like BIF_lorem gets overwritten with NULL by an error somewhere
else in the code, which only occurs on certain platforms.

Pretty nasty.
