I guess this couldn't be reproduced on GNU/Linux because all font
names there are pure ASCII.  On Windows, x-list-fonts includes several
non-ASCII characters, in font names such as this:

 "-outline-Counterfeit² B-normal-normal-normal-*-*-*-*-*-p-*-iso10646-1"

There are, indeed, such fonts on MS-Windows.

This bug is triggered only when non-ASCII text is inserted into a
buffer, because it used byte positions where character positions were
expected.

(Actually, I wonder how come we didn't see this until now, the bug
being so glaring; I guess the number of people using
cache-long-line-scans is nil.)

Here, a buffer of 110361 characters was scanned back for a new line,
but know_region_cache is passed 110364 as the buffer end, which is the
value of ZV_BYTE, not of ZV.

Fixed in revision 106820 on the trunk.

I'm closing this bug report (again ;-).
