this problem is an example of 'use-after-free' crash: the crash itself
happens when AccelGlyphCache meets invalid pointer to a cache cell info
in cached glyph info structure. This pointer can have arbitrary value,
because corresponding glyph info structure is already destroyed by
CStrike cache machinery.
The root of the problem is that this destruction is made without any

glyph info object.
Suggested solution is to remove a glyph info instance from the
accelerated cache before destruction. Please take a look to suggested
