Exactly the same backtrace?  The backtrace you posted:

  #19 0x00000000004c2fcb in x_error_handler (display=0x2c59000,

indicates that the X error message was read when Emacs unblocked input
in xftfont_open, and read pending input.  In synchronous X operation,
the call to x_error_handler should come from an X function, not from
process_pending_signals.  I hoped that seeing the X function that
caused the error will allow us to understand better what is causing
the problem.  If you still see exactly the same backtrace in
synchronous X operation, then I don't see any path forward, except
saying that telling Emacs Dejavu Sans Mono can cover the entire
Unicode range of characters is not recommended.  (But when I did that
with a couple of fonts here, Emacs didn't crash.)  It could be a
problem in the font backend you use, or it could be something else.
