If I use font '9x15' and character 'A', I see this:

  character: A (65, #o101, #x41, U+0041)

Of course, I don't see the 'emacs -Q ...' command.  That was me having
a spot of bother copying-and-pasting from an emacs -Q session.  I'm
used to Emacs automatically copying its region into X's copy-paste
buffer, which 'emacs -Q' didn't do for me.

I've run 'gdb' from inside the src directory so that the 'xbacktrace'
command will be defined, but the output was less than interesting:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I can set a breakpoint and run some other gdb commands if there's
something that it would be helpful for you to see around the time it
