Century Schoolbook L Roman:run
(gdb) where
#0  0x082e4b8f in RealCAscent ()
Error addressing memory address 0x82e4blc: No such process.

I also noted these messages from gdb:
Font/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/c0590131.pfb has broken glyph 357 (charcode 1078)
(same font) has broken glyph 424 (charcode 1175)
(same font) has broken glyph 467 (charcode 1218)
(same font) has broken glyph 487 (charcode 1245)
(same font) is broken and will be discarded.

Nimbus Sans L Regular Italic

gdb didn't show "where". The entire message was:
The program being debugged has been started already.

Looks like my problem is broken fonts. How do I convert these font 
numbers to recognizable names? Is there anywhere I can get replacements 
for them (free, of course!)

Thanks again for you time and interest, Andreas
