Hmmm ...  you should have told Michael back then.  You clairvoyantly
identified the problem then as ...

  But the real problem is that call to
  x_free_frame_resources, which eventually calls free_frame_faces, which
  decrements the image-cache refcount and frees the image cache, because
  the refcount goes to zero.

... but the recipe ...

  So I think the X version needs the same change I made in w32fns.c in
  revision 117131, modulo the changes to the assertions.

... was misleading because the bug was triggerd without violating an
assertion.  I doubt that Michael then build with glyph debugging enabled
because otherwise his fix should have helped indeed.

OK.  One last question: In struct image_cache we specify refcount as
ptrdiff_t while w32fns.c defines image_cache_refcount as int.  Both
xfns.c and nsfns.m define image_cache_refcount as ptrdiff_t.  Shouldn't
we uniquify this?
