Package: fonts-noto-hinted
Version: 20171026-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I went to open mpc in Emacs, and my artists (and song titles) are in multiple languages, including Kannada (the font for which I found this problem). A very specific character (ಕು) caused Emacs to crash. This was reproducible multiple times using both the GTK+ and Lucid builds of Emacs 25.

I uninstalled the package, which prevented the crash (that is, other fonts - e.g. the ones provided by fonts-knda - do not have this problem and do not cause Emacs to crash).

I can provide more information if needed.
