It cannot, obviously.  Bug#17524 was reported in the GLYPH_DEBUG code:
the assertion there segfaulted when it tried to access the image
cache.  So the code was fixed only for that situation.

Doing that for a non-GLYPH_DEBUG code will require the shadow variable
to come out of that condition as well.  Or use some other flag
variable to indicate that x_free_frame_resources is about to be called
when the refcount was not yet incremented.

IOW, that bug was mentioned as a source of ideas, not as something to
copy verbatim to xfns.c.  Sorry if I was unclear about that.
