Look up the call chain (best done by setting a breakpoint and looking
at the backtrace), and you will certainly find a place which decides
to discard them.  Then comment out or change the code which does that.

Again, look at the backtrace at a breakpoint in cleanup_vector and in
compact_font_cache_entry.  Isn't there some GC-related function on the
callstack?  Perhaps post that here, if you cannot figure that out.
