I can second that. I had another crash today, so it has crashed on me
four times in the last week.
I suspect the recent changes to the handling (unwind etc) of x errors,
but I have no proof, as there is no similarity to the crashes (except
that it has now crashed twice in malloc_consolidate (libc internal)
called from emacs_blocked_malloc called from XtVaGetValues in
I didn't have time to dig further into the crash - and I have no way to
what kind of corruption was causing the crash in malloc_consolidate.

I haven't seen any of these -- so there are now 6 different crashes.
Looks like a completely random memory corruption.
