Its not difficult, but takes some time.  The error happens when make compiles 
one lisp file at the time with emacs.  It appears to be random so it does not 
crash in the same lisp-file.  Thus, you have to start emacs from gdb, and repet 
run, quit in gdb for each lisp file until it crashes.  Running in gdb is slow 
with cygwin, and running in gdb makes the bug appear less often.

The make rule is in lisp/Makefile, compile-onefile.
