I'd like to try to reproduce this problem.
This can take some time. Emacs crashed for me, and then I restarted it from gdb. It took about 3 hours before it crashed again, and I'm sure I've made many C-x b in that time.

How many of these "C-x b"s caused the list of possible completions to
exceed one screen line?  If the answer is "many" or "all", then could
you try to figure out or recall if there was anything special about
the ones that caused crashes?

Somewhere between "many" and "all". It is the same list of files I was editing. They mostly start on x (xsettings, xtern, xfns, xlwmenu, and so on), so it probably looked pretty much the same each time.

There was nothing special about the one that caused a crash I can think of.
It seems it just takes time. I just got a crash again, but this time I hadn't started it from gdb, unfortunately. Also, about 3-5 hours before it crashed this time.
