I get a very strange error

SystemId Unknown; Line #1; Column #1020; java.lang.NullPointerException

in FOP 0.94 embedded mode and found out that the issue is fixed in FOP 
0.95beta1. Unfortunately beta1 is not really usable yet as all my fonts are 
enlarged and the pages are shrunken, etc.

The error above must be related to AWTRenderer or MIME_FOP_AWT_PREVIEW related 
methods. The error appears if I use AWTRenderer and then afterwards try to save 
any xsl-fo based PDF file to disk via Fop fop = 
GlobalObjects.obtainFopFactory().newFop(MimeConstants.MIME_PDF, userAgent, 
outputStream)... After using AWTRenderer I have to exit the JVM to get the file 
creation working again. As soon as I preview MIME_PDF does not work any longer.

I wonder if there is any chance that I could get a patch, or a hint where to 
fix the code. I could then do to build on my own. If this is not possible, 
could you let me know when 0.95 is scheduled to be released? It took me 5 days 
to change all our xsl-foo and related Java code to version 0.94 compatibility. 
Therefore I cannot go back to version 0.20.5.

I posted this first in the users mailing list but nobody could respond. I guess 
this is better suited in this list.
Your help in this is greatly appreciated.
