Jan, do you also see this font loaded in your case?

So how do we end up loading that problematic font, and why does that
happen with the recipe for this bug, but not if set-fonset-font on the
command line is omitted?

It looks like this is a problem with all color emoji fonts, so this is
indeed a duplicate of bug#30045.  See this bug:


The question now becomes: how do we avoid loading such fonts, at least
when the xftfont back-end is in use?  Is there any alternative except
telling users to "move such fonts out of the way"?
