Which paid off with this report from bug #14205:

> w32_backtrace at w32fns.c:7685
> emacs_abort at w32fns.c:7717

The crash seems to be here:

            int wwhlp= WINDOW_WANTS_HEADER_LINE_P (w);

Here's the definition of WINDOW_WANTS_HEADER_LINE_P:

  #define WINDOW_WANTS_HEADER_LINE_P(W)                         \
    (!MINI_WINDOW_P ((W))                                               \
     && !(W)->pseudo_window_p                                   \
     && BUFFERP (W->contents)                                   \
     && !NILP (BVAR (XBUFFER (W->contents), header_line_format))        \
     && WINDOW_TOTAL_LINES (W) > 1                              \
     + !NILP (BVAR (XBUFFER (W->contents), mode_line_format)))

The only parts that can abort here are XFRAME and XBUFFER.  But
W->contents is already tested to be a buffer by BUFFERP, which should
be done before XBUFFER, as the expression should be evaluated left to
right, correct?  As for XFRAME, this line earlier in the code:

            struct frame *wf = WINDOW_XFRAME (w);

already verifies that w's frame is fine.

Nevertheless, the backtrace address indicates that the assertion that
failed was in XBUFFER.  Are the instructions allowed to be issued out
of order in this case, perhaps on several processing units in

If XBUFFER is indeed the problem, then this means that this snippet,
around line 3115 of w32fns.c:

          f = x_window_to_frame (dpyinfo, hwnd);

produces a non-leaf window in w.  Can a frame's selected window be

Anyway, I added in trunk revision 112287 some more debugging code to
point out which assertions are violated.  Let's see what that gets us.
