yes, this is indeed what's happening.  if i force fontforge-nox and
fontforge-dbg to be installed together, then "gdb fontforge" doesn't
produce the error messages, and any backtraces are complete.

debian/rules is producing debug symbols for fontforge-nox instead of the
x11 package.

i just committed r4429 (attached here), which appears to resolve the
problem for me.
