Yes, I know, this is clearly visible in the backtrace.

Because it causes the assertion violation anyway.

I'm not sure yet that I know what is the safe value.  I'd appreciate
some help, if you can.  Look at the backtrace:

  #1  0x010ea4c8 in adjust_glyph_matrix (w=0x5b20a00, matrix=0x57b9480, x=0, 
y=0, dim=...) at dispnew.c:493
  #2  0x010eddb2 in allocate_matrices_for_window_redisplay (w=0x5b20a00) at 
  #3  0x010eec1d in adjust_frame_glyphs_for_window_redisplay (f=0x3903c00) at 
  #4  0x010ee208 in adjust_frame_glyphs (f=0x3903c00) at dispnew.c:1944
  #5  0x010ede82 in adjust_glyphs (f=0x3903c00) at dispnew.c:1889
  #6  0x010f7aa7 in change_frame_size_1 (f=0x3903c00, newheight=65, newwidth=2, 
pretend=0, delay=0, safe=0) at dispnew.c:5826
  #7  0x010f772b in change_frame_size (f=0x0, newheight=0, newwidth=-2, 
pretend=0, delay=0, safe=0) at dispnew.c:5736
  #8  0x010f74e0 in do_pending_window_change (safe=0) at dispnew.c:5702

If newwidth is 2 (in frame 6), then how come w->total_cols becomes
zero by the time it gets to adjust_glyph_matrix?  Joseph reported
these values:

  w->left_margin_cols = 24
  w->total_cols = 0

How did that happen, in a window that is just 2 columns wide??  If
that's legit, then 2 is too small; or else we have yet another bug on
our hands.
