  xfstt shouldn't be aborting, it's supposed to start up and stay up 
(like apache).  I've glanced around the source code and don't see any
logging mechanism, so to figure out what is happening on your system
to hurt xfstt I would need you font pack (from /usr/share/fonts/truetype)
or access to your machine.

  I've tried repeating this step about 20 times, and can't reproduce a
problem here, I installed the msttcorefonts and that single additional
Garton font you were having a problem with.  If we can figure out
what is causing xfstt to go away that will fix your problem...
