2) this looks like a font issue (as you mentioned) try forcing the app to
load 'fixed' as its font.
Using emacs with fixed font works and I also found the problem which is
descirbed in #279380. I think this bug is worth to be increased in
severity but strangely the effect I observed on my laptop does not
occure on other installations. I'd like to aks some "font-experts"
if the remaining fonts.* files might make other applications crash and
which further circumstances lead to this result. At least at my laptop
was the removal of these files successful.
