crash recipe for htmlText?

I have had problems with non-yellow background color for text, when
right clicking on it! It would cause a crash. The problem was something
like that - but it has been a few months, so I do not remember the exact
details. It worked fine on yellow - but it had to be exactly yellow -
even a little variation caused a crash. Very strange.

Ah, if only it were so easy. ;)
Unfortunately the results are quite varied:
- Most of the time it works
- Sometimes it will display garbage and not crash
- Sometimes it will display garbage and crash

No.  Have you have problems with that?
