Excellent investigation!

Idle automatically picked Dejavu Sans Mono as default font. I have also several fonts for e.g. unicode symbols and emojis installed. Noto Sans Mono CJK fonts are working fine, too. However when I select the Noto Emoji font in the font selector, Idle immediately crashes with a very similar Xlib error
