crash recipe for htmlText?

Does the same bit of htmltext cause it to crash every time? If so, you
could keep cutting out lines from the htmltext until you stop getting
the crash - the look to see what was cut - might help narrow it down.

Does this by any chance involve setting the background color of text?

Ken's Revzilla crashes on me once in a while.  I do see some garbage in 
the field before all goes totally bad.  I have bugzillaed it at:
