St console crash on emoji

I have received sms with "🤫" character. When opening notification of that sms, St console disappears (perhaps crash) after short flash. Also opening text messages and given contact does fail. Also cat sms.txt will crash St terminal.

I have read sms using syncthing synchronization and my desktop.

I am also able to read sms using ssh to phone and cat-ing file (this time using gnome terminal on desktop).

This is a known bug in Xft (displaying coloured emoji). I thought it was patched in at least alpine linux because I don't have the issue on postmarketos. Are you running another distro? Make sure they ship the libxft-bgra patch (for some reason it's still not merged in xft after all this time).
