we have recently switched Mandriva cooker to fontconfig 2.3.92 and I've
got a lot of bug report on a reproducible bug when configuration file is
invalid :

create ~/.fonts.conf with the following data :

<?xml version="1.0"?><!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" >

And you'll get nice crash when starting any application using
fontconfig :)

BTW, running valgrind with this particular config file is causing a lot
of invalid memory access warning in valgrind.
