What is the backtrace of the other threads?

Which ones?  The only ones I see are these:

  #3  0x00000001005009cc in bidi_level_of_next_char (bidi_it=0x426878)
      at /usr/src/debug/emacs-24.3.93-4/src/bidi.c:2325
          eob = 811
          type = UNKNOWN_BT
          level = 0
          prev_level = -1
          next_for_neutral = {
            bytepos = 4353152, 
            charpos = 4300194024, 
            type = 4344736,         <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            type_after_w1 = UNKNOWN_BT, 
            orig_type = 2148292989  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
          }

which is OK, since the next_for_neutral member doesn't have to be
initialized (the UNKNOWN_BT value in type_after_w1 says it isn't), and
will not be used until it is.  Others are in frame #6, like this:

          bidi_it = {
            bytepos = 4348392, 
            charpos = 4306733202, 
            ch = 5482662, 
            nchars = 25775286310, 
            ch_len = 25775286790, 
            type = 4348416, 
            type_after_w1 = UNKNOWN_BT, 
            orig_type = 6632775, 

but it is from the wrap_it variable, which is not assigned values
unless you have word-wrap turned on in that buffer.

I also see a 'struct it' in redisplay_window (frame #8) with garbled
bidi type values, but that variable is only used under certain
conditions (see line 16178 of xdisp.c), and I have no reason to
believe those conditions were true in this case.

So I don't really see any immediate problems here.

We are left with the riddle.
