Yes, I can reproduce it at will.  I tried a few times again, and
everytime the backtrace looked like this.

I'm afraid I can't do this, at least not at the moment.  I can't build
Emacs right now - I'm changing residence, having not much time and no
relyable connection to the net.  Maybe someone else can test it?  Or is
it appropriate to test the Elisp parts of your patch seperately?

BTW, I can reproduce the crash on different Gnu/Linux systems, so it's
likely that the crash can be reproduced on other computers as well.
