By looking at the menu data structures accessed by these functions:

  #7  0x011c4e4b in w32_free_submenu_strings (menu=0x205e3) at w32menu.c:1701
  #8  0x011c4e5f in w32_free_submenu_strings (menu=0x205f3) at w32menu.c:1706
  #9  0x011c4e5f in w32_free_submenu_strings (menu=0xdd10145) at w32menu.c:1706
  #10 0x011c4eaa in w32_free_menu_strings (hwnd=0x900ca) at w32menu.c:1723
  #11 0x011c2b6e in menubar_selection_callback (f=0x3f63000, client_data=0x2510)
      at w32menu.c:353

In menubar_selection_callback, you will find that Emacs stores in the
keyboard buffer a couple of events produced by a menu selection.  If
my reading of the code is correct, this code:

          entry = AREF (vector, i + MENU_ITEMS_ITEM_VALUE);

retrieves the selected menu item, and `vector' is the entire menu bar,
computed as

  vector = f->menu_bar_vector;

See frame.h for the structure of this vector.

By looking at `entry' you can find which menu item is being selected.

Then in w32_free_submenu_strings, you can see the same info in its
bare C form.

I wouldn't know where to add these statements, because we have no idea
what is causing the memory corruption which leads to the crash.
