Just got this:
(gdb) c
X protocol error: BadFont (invalid Font parameter) on protocol request 55

Dunno what this might mean, nor how to reproduce this.

It means that somewhere you (or someone else) gave Emacs a font name that does
not exist on your system.

a crash on invalid argument in the middle of an interactive work (as opposed to startup) is kind of ungraceful. I thought that if an invalid font it supplied, something else is substituted instead (e.g., plain if no italic, or similar size if the specific size if not found...)
