For the bug you describe to happen, the 'used' count of a frame's face
cache _must_ be reset to zero at some point.  There simply isn't any
other way to "lose" faces from the cache.  So if you don't see that,
it means you didn't succeed to reproduce the problem.

That could work if there's a more-or-less reliable recipe for
reproducing the problem.  Is there?

If there is not recipe, I won't be able to investigate the path to
disaster, and when the segfault happens, it's already too late.
