Oh, how... obvious. I shouldn't respond to these when exhausted.

Ooo:

(gdb) xsymbol it->string
$2 = (struct Lisp_Symbol *) 0xb81a20
There is no member named data.
(gdb) print *((struct Lisp_Symbol *) 0xb81a20)
$3 = {
  gcmarkbit = 0,
  redirect = SYMBOL_PLAINVAL,
  constant = 1,
  interned = 2,
  declared_special = 0,
  xname = 8697697,
  val = {
    value = 12065314,
    alias = 0xb81a22,
    blv = 0xb81a22,
    fwd = 0xb81a22
  },
  function = 12065266,
  plist = 38661286,
  next = 0x0
}

(gdb) print/x Qnil
$6 = 0xb81a22

So this is clearly actually a forwarded or buffer-localized nil
variable, but redirect has become corrupted so that Emacs thinks,
incorrectly, that it's a value. Right?
