This shows that my guess was wrong:

  (gdb) frame 1
  #1  0x01050284 in window_box_height (w=0x37f3c00) at xdisp.c:1104
  1104           xassert (height >= 0);
  (gdb) p height
  $1 = -482614272
  (gdb) p w->total_lines
  $2 = 32
  (gdb) p w->total_cols
  $3 = 40

The problem is not the window dimensions, which look fine, but
something else.  `height' is computed like this:

  int height = WINDOW_TOTAL_HEIGHT (w);

WINDOW_TOTAL_HEIGHT is defined like this:

    (XFASTINT ((W)->total_lines))
  #define FRAME_LINE_HEIGHT(F) ((F)->line_height)

So the problem must be that FRAME_LINE_HEIGHT (WINDOW_XFRAME ((W)))
returns a negative value.  Can you verify that?  In frame #1, please
type "print f->line_height" and see if the value is negative or maybe a
large positive (which causes the multiplication in WINDOW_TOTAL_HEIGHT
to overflow).

If the value of f->line_height is indeed bogus, please put a
breakpoint in x_new_font, run Emacs again, and when the breakpoint
breaks, step through that function and see why it doesn't put a valid
value into this field.  This should happen on line 5280 of w32term.c:

  FRAME_LINE_HEIGHT (f) = font->height;

If this indeed assigns a bogus value, please show the contents of the
`font' structure ("print *font" at GDB prompt).
