I suppose because `vertical-motion' can do all sorts of nasty things,
probably during fontification or scanning pbm images ...

Which code?  The tabbar code "normally works" because it's not
interrupted by C-g.  `vertical-motion' "normally works" because it works
on the buffer shown in the selected window.  In the present case we (1)
temporarily show another buffer in the selected window and (2) interrupt
its execution in a state where that other buffer is still shown in that

I suppose it's, as Stephen pointed out, that after `vertical-motion'
exited forcefully, exiting `with-temp-buffer' tries to find another
buffer to show in that window.  Obviously, this should not happen
because `vertical-motion' should have cleaned up its state before ...
