Hi Martin,

Thank you for reporting this problem and proposing a patch.
I’d prefer not to propagate any fonts. Do you happen to know what themechanism underlying the fix is? Why does this fix the problem? Whydoes it crash in the first place?
Is this at all related to a stale font cache, perhaps?

So i got a chance to dig into this a bit. chromium needs a ttf font andthere are no fonts installed yet, so defaintly not a stale cache issue.Chrome is crashing herehttps://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/ui/gfx/platform_font_skia.cc#97Its using fontconfig i think. I have no idea how to get chromium to readfonts from a custom path.

Can we arrange for a default font to be returned by fontconfig? Perhapsthe fix is not needed in Chromium but in fontconfig or our profile hooks?
