This value of 'to' looks bogus (too large) to me.  The line that
segfaults is

      g->g.to = LGLYPH_TO (LGSTRING_GLYPH (lgstring, g->g.to));

and the LGSTRING_GLYPH macro expands to AREF (lgstring, g->g.to+2), so
we are indexing an lgstring with an index that's 117, too large.  The
value of lgstring shown above has only 10 elements, which is
consistent with the definition of an lgstring (see composite.h, around
line 270).

So the question becomes: where did that value of 'to' come from, and
how come its value is bogus?  Can you look at the code before the
faulting line and figure that out?

I'm CC'ing Handa-san, who might have insight for this problem.

That's right.

So why does Emacs use FreeSerif on this system and Lohit Gujarati on
the faulting one?  Are both fonts installed on both systems?  Is Lohit
Gujarati a bad font, by any chance?

Also, do both systems have the same version of libm17n-flt and m17n-db
libraries?
