Hi Raimund,

I am double checking the version on the customer's install, will get back to you.
The call stack is identical in the last seven frames, though pango is not involed in this particular call stack.

Judging by the date of the comments in this bug I would guess 1f4e6fecde22fd4ce8336b01a5c32c533fcb8bac, i. e.

However, if I understand the bug correctly this was supposed to be fixed with 2.8.0, and even before only happened if the same cache was used by different fontconfig versions. Are you sure it's what you're seeing?
