As I recall I started from an emacs -Q, pasted the code into
*scratch*, and hit C-j.

Currently I'm on a different version of emacs to the one in which
I observed the crashes:

  GNU Emacs (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.11) of
2008-11-22 on elegiac, modified by Debian

And with this emacs I can't reproduce the bug.

If it's the font backend, then perhaps I won't see the crash with
an emacs -nw -Q. I'll try and test this.
