(Seemingly) endless try-and-error resulted in this preamble that does  
not lead to the segmentation fault with MacTex 2008 Basic when the  
italic shape of Hoefler is invoked in the headings with scrpage2:



\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Hoefler Text}

{Hoefler Text Italic}
  \ihead{\unfancy Essay}
  \ohead{\unfancy Alexander Hamann}


it still seems weird that a segmentation fault happens when a shape  
of Hoefler is invoked in the header that works perfectly fine in the  
document's body. Even though my imminent problem is now solved I  
wonder what is responsible for this.

Thanks to all who helped here.
