I think you can.  This is about the crash you originally posted in
this bug, the one that happened because some window configuration was
being restored.  Here's the Lisp backtrace you posted:

  "fit-frame" (0x83ea54)
  "1on1-fit-minibuffer-frame" (0x83ed70)
  "run-hooks" (0x83ee3c)
  "old-read-from-minibuffer" (0x83f404)
  "read-from-minibuffer" (0x83f620)
  "list" (0x83f85c)
  "call-interactively" (0x83fb64)

You also said back then:

I'm guessing that somewhere inside fit-frame you have code that
restores configuration of windows that was previously saved.  I was
asking for showing the relevant parts of that saved configuration,
that would perhaps explain why set-window-configuration needs to
select a different frame.

This crash is identical to the first one.  So if you can show the
window configuration data structure used by set-window-configuration
in this case, it would be helpful.  TIA
