Thanks to Jacqueline Landman Gay,

I'm impressed with RR tech support. I almost fell over after reading a 
criticism about RR's documentation on versiontracker. If you've ever 
used Director, you know what a nightmare that documentation is. RR's 
documentation is a dream by comparison. But I digress

There were three fonts, interestingly all dingbat fonts, that were 
causing the trouble: DavysDings2, DavysDings3, and Dingies. As a test I 
rebuilt Dingies with a different FOND and it worked ok.
