Recently upgraded my system and Wine apps (winecfg, wine control) stopped working, due to "internal wine crash".

I've managed to use WINEDEBUG to pinpoint the cause:
the last function it calls is `font:get_glyph_outline`, and then it has a memory access violation.

I've used `downgrader` to install `freetype2`, version 2.8 (before I had 2.8.1) and the crashing stopped.

Additional info:
* the crash seems to occur only with 64-bit WINEPREFIXs, 32-bit Wine has no problem
* I tried using older versions of wine / wine-staging, nothing changed
* I've attached the `stderr` output of `winecfg`, ran with `WINEDEBUG=+font,seh winecfg`.

Steps to reproduce:
- Install `wine-staging` version 2.17
- Install `freetype2` version 2.8.1
- Start `winecfg` with a 64-bit wine prefix. Observe crashing
- Downgrade to `freetype2`, version 2.8.0
- Crashing stopped
This task depends upon
