Sounds even more interesting.
I doubt Phil changes could lead to crash though.
Perhaps this is sideeffect of some other fixes in the native code. Do 
you have hs_err* files?

Can you run both old and new versions with -Dsun.java2d.debugfonts=true?
Would be interesting to see what is the difference.
