Sorry, I don't understand: how did you know to attach the debugger
exactly when Emacs crashed or was about to crash?  Just attaching a
debugger stops Emacs wherever it was, which could be anywhere (judging
by the backtrace, it was in some system call, waiting for some other
syscall to finish).  That place is random, normally having nothing to
do with the crash.

But you said that Emacs crashes while byte-compiling japanese.el.
When it did crash, did you see the abort dialog, or did you see
something else?
