It evidently is.  My current theory is that the font driver was not
fully set up, before Emacs got interrupted by C-g.

The immediate problem is clearly that we dereference a NULL pointer.

I installed a trivial workaround for that in r117235 on the emacs-24
branch.  The diffs are below.  Can you try this and see if the problem
is solved?  It's possible that the real problem is somewhere else, in
which case you will probably see it when you apply the patch.

Thanks.
