I think I found the problem. It's a bit tricky.

When we purecopy the hash tables emitted by the byte code compiler,
Vpurify_flag is a hash table with predicate 'equal. That means the
->next vectors for different hash tables now might refer to the same
pure vector.

Rehashing such a hash table thus destroys another hash table's ->next
vector, so it shouldn't happen.

pdumper.c forces rehashing of many hash tables, including pure ones.

The attached patch "fixes" things, at a high price. I'll try coming up
with a proper fix soon if no one beats me to it.

(To reproduce the problem, I added these lines to fn.c:

   DEFSYM (QCrehash_size, ":rehash-size");
   DEFSYM (QCrehash_threshold, ":rehash-threshold");
   DEFSYM (QCweakness, ":weakness");
+  DEFSYM (QCgroup, ":group");
+  DEFSYM (QCversion, ":version");
+  DEFSYM (QCpackage_version, ":package-version");
+  DEFSYM (QClink, ":link");
+  DEFSYM (QCload, ":load");
+  DEFSYM (QCtag, ":tag");
+  DEFSYM (QCset_after, ":set-after");
   DEFSYM (Qkey, "key");
   DEFSYM (Qvalue, "value"); )
