Oh well in that case...

I have to disagree, the problem does show on my Iyonix running OS5.20, just
press the 'Save' button in the Mode Choices window.

The Raspberry Pi is running in ARMv5 compatibility mode.

And there is more. I thought to try this out on VRPC on the Mac but the
little pop-up error window complaining about the missing bitmap stiffed
VRPC.  Exactly the same happened on VRPC on Windows 7. This is associated
with SE470a3 I can force an error pop-up in SE4.69f5 by putting a
non-existent bitmap font name in BaseMode.Choices with no problem.

See http://pittdj.co.uk/temp/scrn470a3.jpg

RPCEmu behaved rather better but on the save errored with "abort on
instruction fetch at 07FFFFF8".

It is not really anything to do with the bitmap fonts, the real issue seems
to be any save of Mode Choices.
