Please post a complete recipe, starting with "emacs -Q", to reproduce
this problem.  Since you are unable to run Emacs under GDB and provide
a traceback which would pinpoint the locus of the error, someone else
will have to do that, and they will need this recipe.  The details you
posted are important, but they will only help once the exact place
which throws the error is identified.

That's not true.
