I applied the patch and rebuilt, and confirm it fixes the bug; thanks.

According to my observations it is a regression, though I don't know why
your observations differ from mine.  Does your patch also fix Emacs 23
for you?  Since the code involved changed significantly between Emacs 23
and 24, I'm curious if your fix also applies to Emacs 23 -- would it go
before the invocation of free_window_matrices in delete_window?  But if
so, why do I not see the bug in Emacs 23?  (And why does Chong Yidong
not see it in Emacs 24?)
