I cannot reproduce this with either today's trunk or the pretest.
Maybe there's something special in your make-emacs script, whose
contents you left unpublished.  (I just put there a single "make"
command with a few switches, which is what I normally use to build
Emacs.)  Or maybe this doesn't happen in "emacs -Q", and some optional
features need to be turned on for it to happen.

Also, the line numbers you show in the backtrace differ considerably
from what I see in the pretest sources: e.g., move_it_by_lines there
starts at line 8834, and the only place it can call `abort' is on line

      xassert (it->current_x == 0 && it->hpos == 0);

So I'm unable to proceed without either a way to reproduce this crash
or some additional information from you.

Also, please start the debugger from the `src' directory, so that it
also shows the Lisp backtrace that corresponds to the C backtrace.
