Launching the atom editor is the easiest way to repro this bug, though some users in the Keybase issue above reported that they were still able to use atom despite reproing the bug with Keybase. I'm trying to figure out whether that could be a difference between the `atom-editor` and `atom-editor-bin` packages.

Downgrading freetype2 to version 2.6.2 fixes the issue.

Can you bisect FreeType?

If I did this right, it looks like it bisects to commit 24aa9c665e3a8bbfbc5ae016354ffba7a1377fd3, "[autofit] Rewrite HarfBuzz interface to support character clusters."

Is this fixed now? Electron should now ship a newer harfbuzz.
