Is this reproducible?  If so, can you post a reproducible recipe
starting with "emacs -Q"?

This backtrace makes no sense: uniscribe_encode_char calls
release_frame_dc only if the variable 'context' has a non-NULL value
(and then 'f' should also be non-NULL).  But here we see that
release_frame_dc is called by uniscribe_encode_char when both
'context' and 'f' are NULL, which cannot happen.  I was about to say
that this could be due to compiler optimizations that screw up the
backtrace, but then I saw that your Emacs binary was built with -O0.
So now I'm stumped how could this happen at all.
