I'm sorry I don't have gdb here and also no experience in using it.

But it is helpful to know that this problem has nothing to do with 
AUCTeX. Maybe I can now find a minimal emacs command line call that 
evokes the crash. Then I could report it to bug-gnu-emacs.

Because I could not find any similar reports I also wonder if this 
effect is specific to my machine. I'm going to see if I can reproduce 
it on other XP machines before filing a report.
