Please reconfigure like this:

  configure --enable-asserts --enable-checking --with-gif=no --with-gnutls=no 
'CFLAGS=-g3 -O0'

This will enable several important sanity checks and hopefully allow
us to see why the frame pointer is NULL.  Please try again after
rebuilding Emacs, and see if you get an abort somewhere, or the same

And display w->frame there, is it also NULL?  If so, can you display
the contents of the structure pointed to by w, and also compare that
with selected_window?  Also, what is the value of current_buffer and

When this happened, is it possible that you did something that
modified the display configuration, like killed a window or a frame or
changed the display dimensions?
