Look for unconditional uses of FRAME_W32_WINDOW in code that is not
guaranteed to be invoked in a GUI session.  Functions exposed to Lisp
are an obvious candidate, as in this case.

FRAME_W32_WINDOW is not a predicate.  You probably meant
FRAME_INITIAL_P and FRAME_W32_P.  The difference is the method used to
output text.

No, it implies (on w32) FRAME_W32_P or FRAME_TERMCAP_P.

If there are, we will crash.

> And do we prefer (FRAME_W32_WINDOW (f) != 0) to (!FRAME_W32_WINDOW (f))?

We prefer !FRAME_W32_P (f)

> Also I believe that I should replace FRAME_X_WINDOW by FRAME_W32_WINDOW.

Yes.

Thanks.
