Where did the ellipsis character come from?  Did you have some buffer
shown in that frame that could have used this character?  According to
the last keys you show below, you were typing into minibuffer, which
is unlikely to have that character.

Sounds like some code called clear_face_cache, for some reason.  Is f
at all the same frame where you were typing?  If not, the crash could
have nothing to do with what you typed, but with some background
activity on another frame.
