The code involved in this hardly ever touches Emacs internals.  It's
simple ObjC code, at least to my naive eyes.

As the first goal, I suggest to try figuring out what happens with the
font_spec argument to ns_findfonts -- is it corrupted right at entry
to the function, or does it get corrupted later?  You should display
it, using the same commands you used for scratch_font_spec in its
caller, right at the entry to the function.  Assuming the value at
entry is OK (which would be my guess), then step through the code of
ns_findfonts, and see which line causes its corruption.

When we know where the corruption happens, we could reason about what
to try next.

TIA
