Let's start by finding the immediate reason for the crash.  Please
show the contents of `face', the last argument to FACE_FOR_CHAR in the
line that crashed.

Also, what kind of signal was it that crashed the program?  (The
backtrace is in some form that I'm not familiar with, so maybe the
information is already present there.)
