Could you report this bug to the bug tracking system (reportug) ?
Also did you mean that the font is now registered in two places : xfstt
and via kde font installer ?
There was an uplad yesterday about xft2 it could help if your crash comes
from the client side and not the xfs server .
you should look at the faq from the X strike force (X debian maintainers)
they have a lot of helpfull tips and how to provide advanced informations.
