fc-cache segfaults when trying to cache this directory:

fc-cache -fv

/usr/share/fonts/TTF/free: segfault

"free" contains 437 fonts. If I remove it then fc-cache works fine. It's strange since it worked before and the directory's contents didn't change.
I tried adding the path to "free" in xorg.conf and/or local.conf, or put the fonts in ~/.fonts, but with no luck.

I think the problem is with fontconfig/fc-cache since the fonts worked before.
You can find the fonts here if you want to test this: > (~11mb)

It looks like fontconfig didn't like two of my fonts. Maybe they are corrupted... or something.
They are: Bit 01 and BitMirror. I attached them if you want to test this out.
