How do I do that?
It didn't run in gdb, and I don't know how to reproduce the crash.

I just did a search on a year worth of crash logs (47 crashes) and didn't find 
this specific crash again.

Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000110

Is it possible that this code runs, somehow, after a face got deleted?  That, 
per se, might be the real cause of the bug - but I can only speculate.

As said, the macro is documented to return NULL in some cases, and the code in 
the same function (below) checks for that case (of course I don't know when 
such a case can happen).  So independently of this particular crash it would be 
good style to "if (face)" there.

Let me know if I can help in any way.
