Not only that, but .fonts.cache-2 then becomes corrupted. Interesting,
eh? This seems to be the source of the cache corruption; if you run
fc-cat on fonts.cache-2 at this point, you'll find that it segfaults.
I added an extra FcDirScan to this codepath. I believe that this fixes
the cache corruption problems. I hate to admit that I'm not entirely
sure why the old code had cache corruption problems, but I'll look into
that just a bit longer. It seems to make sense though.
