I'm not sure this is specific to R2.9 or to the R.app GUI,

quartzFonts(myriad=quartzFont(c("MyriadPro-Regular", "MyriadPro-Bold",
"Myriad Pro-It", "Myriad Pro-BoldIt")))
hist(rnorm(1000), family="myriad") # looks fine on-screen

then try to save the quartz window manually to a file (cmd-S) results  
in a crash,

*** caught segfault ***
address 0x0, cause 'unknown'

Possible actions:
1: abort (with core dump, if enabled)
2: normal R exit
3: exit R without saving workspace
4: exit R saving workspace
