FWIW, I cannot reproduce this (also on an x86_64 GNU/Linux system),
neither in Emacs 23 nor with today's trunk. In fact,
internal-char-font doesn't even get called here with this recipe. I
guess this has something to do with local system differences, and
perhaps with configure-time options.
Hopefully, the backtrace will allow to solve this nonetheless.
