Repeated Mac arm64 crashes of xdvi-xaw with "set_no_char: attempt to set character of unknown font, offset 42"

Continuing to use my 120 page document, I now believe that shift-R is a red herring. I can open the document, and just scholl down the page number column rapidly back and forth, without ever calling shift-R, and create the crash. The terminal report is always similar to

XDvi 22.87.04 (Xaw toolkit): Failed assertion:
../../../texk/xdvik/dvi-draw.c:2187: "color_bot_size > 0": color_bot_size mustn't become negative!
Aborting now. Please report this as a bug to:
