It crashes in the same way, so it's the same problem.

This means GetOutlineTextMetricsW failed, and we then call
GetTextMetricsW.  But we don't test its return value, and it looks
like it also fails, because the values we put into font are based on
what it returns, and they are garbage:

So I think we found the culprit, the question is how to make this
work.  But first let's make sure the call to GetTextMetricsW indeed
fails.  Please change this code in w32font_open_internal:

  len = GetOutlineTextMetricsW (dc, 0, NULL);
  if (len)
    {
      metrics = (OUTLINETEXTMETRICW *) alloca (len);
      if (GetOutlineTextMetricsW (dc, len, metrics))
        bcopy (&metrics->otmTextMetrics, &w32_font->metrics,
               sizeof (TEXTMETRICW));
      else
        metrics = NULL;
    }

  if (!metrics)
    GetTextMetricsW (dc, &w32_font->metrics);

to say this instead:

  unsigned e;
  ...
  len = GetOutlineTextMetricsW (dc, 0, NULL);
  if (len)
    {
      metrics = (OUTLINETEXTMETRICW *) alloca (len);
      if (GetOutlineTextMetricsW (dc, len, metrics))
        bcopy (&metrics->otmTextMetrics, &w32_font->metrics,
               sizeof (TEXTMETRICW));
      else
        metrics = NULL;
    }
  else
    e = GetLastError ();

  if (!metrics)
    {
      if (!GetTextMetricsW (dc, &w32_font->metrics))
        e = GetLastError ();
    }

Then compile, step through the code again, and tell what value gets
assigned to e.

Thanks.
