Moreover, even if I force the call to clear_font_cache by invoking
clear-font-cache in the progn, I don't see a crash, and the use count
of the frame's face cache is not zero.

So one way of tracking this down would be to put a breakpoint in
Fclear_face_cache, and when it breaks, step through the function until
it assigns the frame pointer to 'f', and put a watchpoint on
f->face_cache->used, to see which code zeroes it.  My guess would be
that some code calls free_realized_faces (I misremembered earlier:
clear_face_cache doesn't do that).
