Itʼs coming from the caching in ftcrfont_glyph_extents:

  row = glyph / METRICS_NCOLS_PER_ROW; <== glyph == 0xFFFFFFFF, row -> 0x1FFFFFF
  col = glyph % METRICS_NCOLS_PER_ROW;
  if (row >= ftcrfont_info->metrics_nrows)
    {
      ftcrfont_info->metrics =
        xrealloc (ftcrfont_info->metrics,
                  sizeof (struct font_metrics *) * (row + 1));
      memset (ftcrfont_info->metrics + ftcrfont_info->metrics_nrows, 0,
              (sizeof (struct font_metrics *)
               * (row + 1 - ftcrfont_info->metrics_nrows)));
      ftcrfont_info->metrics_nrows = row + 1; <=== weʼre updating
  metrics_nrows, lets look in ftfont.h
    }

ftfont.h:

#ifdef USE_CAIRO
  cairo_scaled_font_t *cr_scaled_font;
  /* Scale factor from the bitmap strike metrics in 1/64 pixels, used
     as the hb_position_t value in HarfBuzz, to those in (scaled)
     pixels.  The value is 0 for scalable fonts.  */
  double bitmap_position_unit;
  /* Font metrics cache.  */
  struct font_metrics **metrics;
  short metrics_nrows;
  ^^^^^ oops! Now we end up calling xrealloc every time we enter
  ftctfont_glyph_extents for that glyph.

Of course, I donʼt think glyph should be 0xFFFFFFFF, but thatʼs a
different problem.
