I've built 24.1 release and the latest version from git repository.
Both exhibit same behavior:

Things that might need clarification:
- I try to avoid AA fonts everywhere I can, so, every possible font
rendering setting I found is set so it shouldn't use AA. This is KDE
on Debian squeeze 64 bit. The default font used everywhere is Arial.

What I see when Emacs starts (and stops on the fault) - the display
area isn't fully initialized, the screen and the scrollbars aren't
drawn completely (scrollbars show blanks). The mouse pointer changes
shape to a bitmap image of an arrow (similar to the one used on Macs,
i.e. black arrow with white contour) while hovering over the menu
strip. The mouse pointer disappears when hovering over the text area.
The menu in Emacs doesn't use the system default font at the time it
crashes (it uses something that looks like narrow-ish Helvetica, but
cannot tell for sure, but it uses some sort of vector rendering, it's
not a bitmap font.)

I'll happily provide any additional info.
