Tried with "Courier" (instead of the default "Courier New") on
Windows, but still couldn't reproduce the crash.  It could be related
to the library used to shape Arabic glyphs (libotf on GNU/Linux as
opposed to Uniscribe on Windows), not to the fonts being used.

Handa-san just committed a fix for mouse positioning on text that
could be related to this crash.  Could you please see if the crash is
still reproducible in the latest development version?
