0002258: "out of memory" and SEGV on fairly simple graph with splines="ortho"
I've generated a graph (attached) with 32 nodes and 49 edges. Dot crashes with an "out of memory" message and a SEGV when attempting to process the file.
Using the attached bug.gv, execute "dot -Tsvg -O bug.gv"

The output is:
$ dot -Tsvg -O bug.gv
out of memory
Segmentation fault: 11
No tags attached.

I've verified that this is still a problem in the most recent dev snapshot:
dot - graphviz version 2.31.20130213.0545 (20130213.0545)

Unfortunately, this crash only appears to happen on Mountain Lion. I know what the problem is but haven't had time to find what triggers it. I also don't know any general workaround.

Thanks erg. This was helpful. I dusted off a win 7 laptop for now.
