1.

I can reproduce it by

    (setq x-gtk-use-system-tooltips nil)

    Move the mouse over a tooltip area in the mode line.
    => Crash


The recent change to decode_any_window

      CHECK_LIVE_FRAME (w->frame);

signals an error in x_create_tip_frame since f->terminal is still NULL
at this point

  [x_create_tip_frame]

      f = make_frame (1);
      ...
      buffer = Fget_buffer_create (build_string (" *tip*"));
      Fset_window_buffer (FRAME_ROOT_WINDOW (f), buffer, Qnil);    <<<<
      ...
      f->terminal = dpyinfo->terminal;


The error is caught by tooltip-show

    (condition-case error
          ...
          (x-show-tip ...))
      (error
       (message "Error while displaying tooltip: %s" error)
       ...

which crashes while trying to print "(wrong-type-argument frame-live-p
#<dead ...", since f->name is nil.


The problem can be fixed (error in decode_any_window avoided) by moving
the initialization of f->terminal earlier:

2.

But the late initialisation of f->name is a problem in its own right:

    (setq x-gtk-use-system-tooltips nil)
    (defun foo (win pos) (message "%S" (window-frame win)))
    (add-hook 'window-scroll-functions 'foo)

    Move the mouse over a tooltip area in the mode line.
    => Crash

(Also crashes in Emacs 23.)


3.

The same problem with f->name also exists in
Fx_create_frame/make_minibuffer_frame:

    (defun foo (win pos) (message "%S" (window-frame win)))
    (add-hook 'window-scroll-functions 'foo)

    (make-frame '((minibuffer . only)))
    => Crash

(Also crashes in Emacs 23.)
