FontForge crashes.

A lot. 

So much that the program makes an autosave of your open project every 60 seconds or so.  Consider yourself lucky if you open a FF project file and DON'T get a message asking whether to restore your previous session. :)

It's not every day that you get a message from dawn of times so well preserved. Did someone just break into a sealed tomb with FontForge bugreport scrolls from 2003? :)

FF got a lot more stable in last 4-5 years.

Not when you're trying to get it running in a Windows environment (non-native to FF) and don't necessarily have 4-5 years of experience to compare it to.  In my experience, most crashes were related not to memory/cpu intensive tasks but simple trivial stuff like navigating its Glyph Outline editor by mouse and click/dragging nodes and handles.
