What are the difficulties of catching this when Emacs is run under

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.

Would it make things easier if compile-onefile is modified to invoke
Emacs under GDB to begin with, using the --args switch to GDB?

That is what I do.

Can you tell me exactly how you modified the rule for compile-onefile? I tried but kept getting errors, so I'm obviously not doing it right.
