Why on earth are you SUBTRACTING something called "factor"?

What's causing it is that you're passing a negative (or zero) width,
probably due to the way you're subtracting your scaleFactor. Without
seeing the rest of the code we can't possibly know what you're putting
in that variable, but if the name is anything like honest it's not
something you'd want to subtract.

However, I wouldn't like to imply any certainty that the error is
related in any way to a "crash".
