Could you please send to me the exact bzr command you would like me to
do in order to revert to whatever revision you think is of interest, and
then I can rebuild Emacs and try again to crash.

Another option would be to instrument Fexpand_file_name in order to find
when it crashes in more details, just send me a fileio.c as attachment
if you want me to do that.

After reading of Eli that the crash is within Fexpand_file_name, I have
done some more investigation how to provoke the crash with a simpler
command line, and I have found that the following arguments suffice:

-Q "--eval=(expand-file-name \"c:Invalid/path/info\" 

Please note that:

1) C:\Programme\GNU\installation\emacs-install\emacs\trunk\src/ is the
   value of variable default-directory, and I need to pass it explicitly
   to expand-file-name for the crash to happen

2) It is on purpose that
   C:\Programme\GNU\installation\emacs-install\emacs\trunk\src/ mixes
   backward and forward slashes, it is the way it is when I launch Emacs
   with -Q and
   current directory=C:\Programme\GNU\installation\emacs-install\emacs\trunk\src

3) C:\Programme\GNU\installation\emacs-install\emacs\trunk\src is the
   directory where the C source code is found, and in which I lauch gdb
   according to Eli's recommendation.

4) c:Invalid/path/info is an invalid path, and it is on purpose that
   first slash after c: is missing.

Hopefully, this shorter settup will allow you to reproduce the
crash. Could you please try that before I have to do any bzr reverting.


PS: Attached is a gdb session log with the crash causing simpler settup.
