Hi Tobi,

Incidentally, I was just about to send you the exact same patch yesterday, but 
could just stop myself from hitting send. The problem with the current fix is 
that it relies on 'font' beeing initialized to an empty string before the call 
to sscanf:

   char font[1024];

   if(sscanf(optarg, "%10[A-Z]:%lf:%1000s", prop,&size,font) >= 2){
           if (strlen(font) > 0){

However, sscanf doesn't touch 'font' if there are only two values to read, as in 
'--font TITLE:5:', and I can't see 'font' beeing initialized anywhere else. 
Under those circumstances, the following 'strlen(font)' is very courageous indeed.

Initializing 'font' should take care of this though:

    char font[1024] = "";

(also see attached patch file).
