    At the risk of spreading unsubstantiated FUD, I experienced system
    crashes (BSOD) twice in one day while trying to configure the
    composite-font feature in BabelPad (beta D) to use Symbola 6.00
    on Windows XP SP3.

    I don't know yet whether the problem was with the font or BabelPad (or
    something else), but I hadn't seen a BSOD on that machine for six months
    or more. Given the stability of BabelPad, even beta copies, I'm
    inclined to suspect the font.
