It's very elusive; it even managed to defeat "bzr bisect".  I
eventually bisected manually, and it looks like my bidi merge is the
culprit, although it beats me how that could happen, given the
evidence I posted, and given that the bidi code is not even called
once between startup and the crash.  Perhaps my merge rearranged
memory and somehow awoke this sleeping dog.  Or maybe I'm missing

I posted some details of what I succeeded to find out; any ideas about
how to proceed are welcome.
