I think the problem is, like on Windows, that this recipe causes Emacs
to free the image cache of the single frame.  It doesn't crash
immediately because the assertion in unwind_create_frame on X is
different from that on Windows, and doesn't dereference the NULL
image_cache pointer.  But the real problem is that call to
x_free_frame_resources, which eventually calls free_frame_faces, which
decrements the image-cache refcount and frees the image cache, because
the refcount goes to zero.

So I think the X version needs the same change I made in w32fns.c in
revision 117131, modulo the changes to the assertions.  Can you try
that?  (There's a comment I added as part of the commit that explains
the problem in more detail.)
