But the call to mark_maybe_pointer means that we consider pp to be a
pointer (in)to a Lisp object.

Anyway, wouldn't it be easier to look one frame lower?  We have this:

  #4850 0x0000000000612b42 in mark_object (arg=XIL(0x2efcb83)) at 
../../src/alloc.c:6624
  #4851 0x0000000000611d4f in mark_vectorlike (ptr=0x2e64c90) at 
../../src/alloc.c:6227
  #4852 0x0000000000612b42 in mark_object (arg=XIL(0x2e64c95)) at 
../../src/alloc.c:6624
  #4853 0x000000000060f3ce in mark_maybe_pointer (p=0x2e64c90) at 
../../src/alloc.c:4936
  #4854 0x000000000060f452 in mark_memory (start=0x7fffffffa520, 
end=0x7fffffffe868)
      at ../../src/alloc.c:4985
  #4855 0x000000000060f493 in mark_stack (bottom=0x7fffffffe868 
"a\036h\364\377\177", 
      end=0x7fffffffa520 "0\245\377\377\377\177") at ../../src/alloc.c:5193

In frame #4852, we have found an object, and we are marking it.  Did
you try looking at that object?  With these caveats:
