Thanks, it seems to work now, at least in a few simple tests I ran
here.  However, there's still a small nuisance:

  (gdb) break decode_any_window
  Breakpoint 3 at 0x11de2a8: file window.c, line 149.
  (gdb) r -Q
  Starting program: D:\gnu\bzr\emacs\trunk\src/./oo/i386/emacs.exe -Q
  [New Thread 1452.0x15d4]

  Breakpoint 3, decode_any_window (window=54896461) at window.c:149
  149       if (NILP (window))
  (gdb) n
  152       CHECK_WINDOW (window);
  (gdb) p window
  $1 = 54896461
  (gdb) xtype
  Lisp_Vectorlike
  262144          <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

In Emacs 24.1, it does better:

  (gdb) p window
  $1 = 53340677
  (gdb) xtype
  Lisp_Vectorlike
  PVEC_WINDOW

I'm not sure if it will be better to go back to 24.1 behavior and
display PVEC_WINDOW, or change .gdbinit to say something more explicit
and human-readable here, such as "window" (and similarly for other
vector-like types).
