Ok, I get:

(gdb) p x_error_message 
$1 = (struct x_error_message_stack *) 0xa61100
(gdb) p *x_error_message 
$2 = {
  string =
  dpy = 0xa0e000, 
  prev = 0x0

Which doesn't look overly helpful.  

I see it has a leading \000.  Does it mean there were more
x_catch_errors() calls than x_uncatch_errors()?  I tried to put a
breakpoint on x_error_catcher(), but it was never triggered before the
call to abort().

What next to try?  Thanks, Simon.
