You are using the display opcode for its intended purpose, that is, 
accomodating different embossers and braille displays. My point is that 
tables should not be written to require a .dis file. The 
character-definition opcodes should be used for the preferred dot 

The segmentation fault has been fixed. This also fixes the problem with 
the file definitions being clobbered under some circumstances. 

Hyphenation has also been fixed. 

I'll put out a bug fix soon. Hopefully it will be on both 
www.jjb-software.com and the Google projects.

With regard to those, it seems that once the license sype has been 
chosen it can't be changed. The license type for liblouis should be 
LGPL. When I try to change it on the liblouis project I am told that it 
has been disabled. The same with the liblouisxml project, but on the 
latter I set the license to LGPL at the beginning.
