    #6  0x00007fffeac0c509 in kpse_fontmap_lookup () from /usr/lib/libkpathsea.so.4

I feel completely brainless these days, but kpathsea/ChangeLog has this

	* fontmap.c (map_file_parse): free the original pointer, not the
	potentially moved one (after whitespace skipping). 
	From: "George N. White III", 25 Jul 2007 11:27:12.

Looking at the svn log for fontmap.c, I believe the above change is
r4824.  I leave it to you to dig out the actual code.

Hope this helps,
