And furthermore, having set a breakpoint in w32_BDF_TextOut I can
confirm that emacs doesn't try to draw any BDF fonts for me when
operating normally.  I think the fact that it arrives there in the
first place is a symptom of whatever's gone wrong before.

That's a pretty strong clue.  Does anyone know this code well enough
to use that to make progress on this bug?
