This appears to be current_fonts->patterns->match.  As far as I can tell, 
the last part of the stack trace would read (static functions in braces):

FcFontMatch
[pango_fc_patterns_get_font_pattern]
[pango_fc_fontset_load_next_font]
[pango_fc_fontset_get_font_at]
[pango_fc_fontset_foreach]
[pango_fontset_foreach]
[get_base_metrics]
pango_context_get_metrics

It *may* be that this is not a library leak as much as a usage error, like 
a Pango context which hasn't been freed somewhere.  In that case, I'd 
expect there to be another leak, though; this is most certainly not an 
error in eda_renderer_get_font_descent.

The other two leaks are much harder to trace (I gave up around 
pango_font_map_load_fontset), but I think it's safe to assume that they 
are of a similar kind.
