No error messages
Doesn't happen on other arches.
any idea why the messages in comment #0 appear? Is it caused by fontconfig or something else?
I don't know. Sounds like a powerpc-specific issue. We need such a broken file and access to powerpc to debug.
Is this issue still reproducible? if so, any further information to debug it?
