Is this reproducible?  If so, can you tell how to reproduce it?

It seems to tell that some glyph row(s) whose glyphs are reallocated
here:

          while (row < end)
            {
              row->glyphs[LEFT_MARGIN_AREA]
                = xnrealloc (row->glyphs[LEFT_MARGIN_AREA],  <<<<<<<<<<<
                             dim.width, sizeof (struct glyph));

don't have their hash values initialized, and so this comparison
within row_equal_p:

  if (a == b)
    return 1;
  else if (a->hash != b->hash)  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    return 0;
  else
    {

uses uninitialized value.

The strange thing is, the above xnrealloc is not supposed to affect
the row's hash value in any way, it just reallocates its glyphs.  So I
cannot make heads or tails out of this.  And the hash value is
initialized to zero for additional glyph rows added to a glyph matrix,
in this fragment:

  /* Enlarge MATRIX->rows if necessary.  New rows are cleared.  */
  if (matrix->rows_allocated < dim.height)
    {
      int old_alloc = matrix->rows_allocated;
      new_rows = dim.height - matrix->rows_allocated;
      matrix->rows = xpalloc (matrix->rows, &matrix->rows_allocated,
                              new_rows, INT_MAX, sizeof *matrix->rows);
      memset (matrix->rows + old_alloc, 0,
              (matrix->rows_allocated - old_alloc) * sizeof *matrix->rows);
    }

The call to `memset' should zero out all the fields of each glyph_row
that were just added to enlarge the matrix.

However, I spotted something strange related to the call to
row_equal_p, here:

  /* Skip over rows equal at the bottom.  */
  i = last_new;
  j = last_old;
  while (i - 1 > first_new
         && j - 1 > first_old
         && MATRIX_ROW (current_matrix, i - 1)->enabled_p
         && (MATRIX_ROW (current_matrix, i - 1)->y
             == MATRIX_ROW (desired_matrix, j - 1)->y)
         && !MATRIX_ROW (desired_matrix, j - 1)->redraw_fringe_bitmaps_p
         && row_equal_p (MATRIX_ROW (desired_matrix, i - 1),
                         MATRIX_ROW (current_matrix, j - 1), 1))
    --i, --j;

Some of these conditions use incorrect indices to access the glyph
matrices: `i' should be used for the current matrix and `j' for the
desired matrix.  Some of these conditions use `i' and `j' correctly,
some don't.  So it's possible, for example, that the test of the
enabled_p flag produces incorrect results, and we then proceed calling
row_equal_p on a row which is not enabled and whose hash was not
computed by redisplay.
