This is one part of the problem, and the other part, unfortunately,
is a bug in color substitution code in V0.81, which can result
in a reserved color being accidently freed. This only happens
under some unlikely combination of situations. That
is why spl and I were not able to reproduce the problem at first.
It took me a while to figure out what was wrong.
