Trying a series of guesses like this about what data is the cause of
the problem is a hopelessly inefficient way to find anything.  The
reliable and efficient way is to run Emacs under a debugger and put a
breakpoint at the place where it looks for a font.  x_load_font
looks like it could be the right place.  See if the error
message is printed within that function; if it is, a backtrace
(both C style and Lisp style) will get you lots of information
about what caused this to happen and what Emacs was trying to do.
