Thanks. I looked at the dump and checked that what we already know is
correct.

The vector we're trying to mark is in mem_node 0xb9b1d50:

(gdb) set $m = (struct mem_node *) 0xb9b1d50
(gdb) print *$m
$116 = {
  left = 0x84b6c20 <mem_z>,
  right = 0x84b6c20 <mem_z>,
  parent = 0x93b2f08,
  start = 0xb9b0d50,
  end = 0xb9b1d48,
  color = MEM_RED,
  type = MEM_TYPE_VECTOR_BLOCK

The contents of the block begin here:

(gdb) set $block = (struct vector_block*) ($m->start)
(gdb) print $block
$122 = (struct vector_block *) 0xb9b0d50
(gdb) set $vector = (struct Lisp_Vector*) $block->data
(gdb) print *$block
$123 = {
  data =
"\023\000\000\200\342\210M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\b\201\331p\nJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\bJ\334M\b\006\000\000\314\302\207M\b\201\272\271\fmɏ\v$\000\000\200&\243\060\f\302\207M\b\"address@hidden",
'\000' <repeats 11 times>, "\302\000\000\000+", '\000' <repeats 11
times>, "\061\064:0\002\000\000\200%\016\233\v\245\016\233\vven "...,
  next = 0xb9cc2a8

The vector we're trying to mark is 96 bytes inside this block:

(gdb) print (char*)ptr - (char*)$vector
$135 = 96

The first vector in the block is a regular vector with 0x13 elements:

(gdb) print/x $vector->header.size
$156 = 0x80000013

It's 80 bytes long:

(gdb) print header_size + (($vector->header.size &~ ARRAY_MARK_FLAG) *
word_size)
$148 = 80

The next vector in the block is a PVEC_COMPILED:

(gdb) print/x $vector->header.size
$159 = 0xcc000006

It's 32 bytes long, which means that we're trying to mark a pointer into
the middle of the vector.

The clear-transient-map symbol itself, of course, is live. It's
perfectly normal and its value slot is set to Qunbound.
