Looks like the font structure is garbled, at least most of its fields
are.

On Windows XP I see this instead:

  (gdb) p *font
  $1 = {
    size = 1075838994,
    next = 0x101ed800,
    props = {48349354, 48349618, 50593634, 48349570, 48343306, 102720, 102528,
      102656, 52, 48130050, 440, 48130050, 48395622, 48130050, 50523489,
      50523505, 48130050, 48343258},
    max_width = 9,
    pixel_size = 13,
    height = 16,
    space_width = 8,
    average_width = 8,
    min_width = 8,
    ascent = 12,
    descent = 4,
    underline_thickness = 1,
    underline_position = 3,
    vertical_centering = 0,
    encoding_type = 0 '\000',
    baseline_offset = 0,
    relative_compose = 0,
    default_ascent = 12,
    font_encoder = 0x0,
    driver = 0x153c300,
    encoding_charset = -1,
    repertory_charset = -1
  }

We are entering an area of Emacs where I don't know enough, so I hope
Jason will chime in RSN...

Anyway.  Could you please step through x_default_font_parameter, and
see which font it picks up here:

  font = !NILP (font_param) ? font_param
    : x_get_arg (dpyinfo, parms, Qfont, "font", "Font", RES_TYPE_STRING);

  if (!STRINGP (font))
    {
      int i;
      static char *names[]
        = { "Courier New-10",
            "-*-Courier-normal-r-*-*-13-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1",
            "-*-Fixedsys-normal-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1",
            "Fixedsys",
            NULL };

      for (i = 0; names[i]; i++)
        {
          font = font_open_by_name (f, names[i]);
          if (! NILP (font))
            break;
        }
      if (NILP (font))
        error ("No suitable font was found");

A word about displaying values of variables declared Lisp_Object.  You
need to start GDB from a directory where you have the .gdbinit file
that comes with the source tarball (you will find it in the src/
directory).  Then use the "pp" command instead of "p" or "print" to
display values of Lisp_Object variables.

After you determine which font is being picked up in the above loop,
please put a breakpoint in uniscribe_open and see if it and especially
w32font_open_internal that it calls succeed to open the font; if they
fail, please try to see why.

Finally, if you start Emacs with "emacs -Q -xrm Emacs.fontBackend:gdi",
does it also aborts in the same way, i.e. inside window_box_height?

Thanks.
