Thanks a lot for testing!

Yeah, a solution to this problem would be nice.  The exceptions and
stackdumps this problem produces are quite ephemeral and tend to
be a bit different with each invocation of Emacs.  What I don't
understand is, why the fc cache, if too old and not exactly matches
the current state of the fonts, crashes at all.  It would be nice
to get rid of this crash and have at least just some error message
