Package: emacs
Version: 24.0.50

Just because get_next_display_element and move_it_in_display_line_to
were involved. Which goes to show how much I know about redisplay :-)

I'm filing a separate bug.

My ignorance, of course...

I was debugging a simple defadvice to narrow-to-region. The "text" of
the message is edebug trying to display END (the argument to n-t-r). I
can reproduce the bug with just this advice:

(defadvice narrow-to-region (before heisenbug activate)

I instrument it with C-u C-M-x, then C-h N to show NEWS, select a few
lines and C-x n n.

I get a message "Loading c:/emacs/lisp/international/uni-category.el
(source)...done" and then the crash.

No, that's the only way I know to trigger it.
