x86 only: Some Custom Arabic TrueType Fonts May Cause an Intel XServer To Crash (4161002)

If applications are using custom fonts rather than system fonts, the XServer may crash on x86 platforms. The problem occurs because some characters in the font are exceeding the height limitation specified with the font.

Workaround: Provide an unhinted version of the offending font. The height of unhinted versions is usually lower.
