It doesn't ring any bell. Do you happen to know if this is reproducible
or if we could get a better stack trace?

From what I can tell, there are only three references to g_strdup* in
Notmuch and they seem to be safe. I also couldn't spot any usage of
iconv so it could mean this issue is happening in GLib, like a few

So I took a quick look at GLib and their issue tracker but I couldn't
see anything obvious (e.g.: the logging system appears to use iconv when
the console isn't UTF-8 but the Debian build system exports
LC_ALL=C.UTF-8, or sometimes filenames are converted to UTF-8, ...).

I can't say if this is unrelated to the architecture but if this test is
too annoying to maintain, feel free to disable it.
