Subject: NULL pointer dereference in XawAsciiSinkInitialize
References: bsc#1098411
Patch-Mainline: Upstream

The function XawAsciiSinkInitialize is prone to a NULL pointer
dereference if no font is available.

Even though a specific check for a NULL font exists, it is called
after GetGC(), which in turn would trigger the NPE in such a case.

Spotted by calling xmessage on a system with an incomplete x font setup:

$ xmessage -b text
Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font
Segmentation fault
$ _
