Unfortunately, I couldn't reproduce it on GNU/Linux.  But the
following examples spontaneously fail with the X11 build on Mac OS X

  (switch-to-buffer-other-window (string ?e 769))
  (switch-to-buffer-other-window (string ?e 769 ?e 769))
  (switch-to-buffer-other-window (string ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769))
  (switch-to-buffer-other-window (string ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769))
  (switch-to-buffer-other-window (string ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769))

  ;; The following one always succeeds.
  (switch-to-buffer-other-window (string ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 769 ?e 

Sometimes the buffer name is rendered incorrectly (see the
attachment), and sometimes the mode line is not updated.  The latter
case often leads to crash afterwards.

The font used for the buffer name in the modeline is

  xft:-bitstream-Bank Gothic-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1

I can see similar phenomena on the Mac port and also with ideographic
variation sequences.  So I don't think fonts or libotf is related to
this issue.

I suspect the problematic case is that `charpos + field_width' in
reseat_to_string exceeds the length of the given string.  The value of
`field_width' is 12 by default when displaying buffer names.
