subtle currently lacks proper widechar support or iconv mechanisms. This results in an overflow, that can cause various things, but most likely segmentation faults.

This has most likely nothing to do with this bug, I fixed the overflow already just the output of xft isn't proper. When subtle freezes this is usually caused by sublets (see #175). Which sublets do you use? (subtler -sl shows a list)
