You can use GNU Screen and Zsh and connect to them using M-x term.  That
puts them within Emacs, but Screen should make things safe from Emac's
crashes.

As I was saying in another thread, there's a bit about doing it with
Screen here http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/GnuScreen , there are couple
of gotchas and things you have to setup in Screen's rc file.

Have you bisected your init file?

Even for an intermittant bug that can help a lot.  Let's say you cut out
half of your init file and work with Emacs for a few hours.  If the problem
doesn't happen you can be pretty sure it's in the cut out bit.  If it
does happen you can be sure it's in the bit left.  If you're getting
crashes about four times a day then you can make a bisect decision every
couple of hours.  So you should be able to identify the 1/8th or 1/16th
of you init file that's to blame :).

BR,
