I haven't had a chance over the past few days to repro this problem, but I
hope to do so this weeekend. The messages about the assertion failure
*during* dumping do seem likely unrelated. The easiest way to debug this
particular crash is with rr. Run the original test as "rr record emacs
[args]", then run "rr replay". The latter will dump you in a GDB prompt.
Type "cont" and run the replay of Emacs until you get to the SIGSEGV. Run
"watch -l [expression]" to break out of execution whenever that value
changes, then run "reverse-cont" to run the replay *backwards* until you
get to the code that changed the variable with the bad value.
