I definitely consider myself fearless, and have no second thoughts on
scrapping my system (which is mostly self-built anyway), but I'm not
exactly sure what I'll be looking for?

Just memory leaks?

Do I need to have extensive configuration for fontconfig in order to
conjure misbehaviour? If so, can someone provide me with one?-)

Any other pointers?
