Is there any chance of progress with this one? I just tried with fx2, the issue seems unchanged.
Previously, I tested fx1 on several computers in several paths (complete innocent containing paths too, no dollar signs etc.) and the NPE seems to be omnipresent.

Could you please have a look at it? Having the standalone mode running again would be great help for tracking down some “paragraphs and lists in inline-block spans” rendering issues fx1 seems to be having. I’ll gladly report those to you then.
