Okay, I guess I misread your earlier message as suggesting that that was the 
problem. In any case, starting from that, I've got a recipe that seems to be 
somewhat reliable at triggering the problem:

  emacs -Q
  M-x list-faces-display RET
Type into the scratch buffer:
  (progn (clear-face-cache t) (internal-char-font nil 8230))
Hit C-j to evaluate. This generally works the first time. Move the cursor back 
up to the end of the expression and hit C-j again. The second time usually 
crashes for me.

The use of list-faces-display came about through guesswork and it seems to 
help. The real trick, I think, is to get FRAME_DISPLAY_INFO(f)->n_fonts to be 
large enough to trigger the call to free_all_realized_faces.
