No, line 819 is this:

  (defun diary-hebrew-birthday (month day year &optional after-sunset)

This doesn't call anything.  So this is still mystery in my eyes.

Btw, column 56, assuming it is 1-based, is 'a' in after-sunset.  Huh??

Hardware problem or some kernel issue are the only things that come to
mind.  Running under a debugger should bring more info.

And I still don't see how 'abs' could be called from that line and
that column.
