I doubt that: the backtrace looks very much like describing the actual
call into the X libraries.

As expected.  But if you put a breakpoint at line 378 of xftfont.c, do
you see the same call to XftTextExtents8 with the same arguments in
the case of 'a'?

Sorry, I don't know enough about the xftfont back-end to provide any
pointers.  Maybe someone else here would.
