What happens if you invoke Emacs with "emacs -q --no-site-file", and then 
turn on these highlighting features from within Emacs?  What happens if 
you evaluate the customizations in your .emacs from a running session 
invoked as mentioned above?

It doesn't help, unfortunately, since your binary appears to be stripped 
(no debug info), so the debugger cannot tell anything interesting.  Can 
you produce a backtrace from an unstripped binary?
