As a matter of fact, I've also gotten an abort a couple of times while
trying to track down this bug, though I did not build with
--enable-checking; unfortunately, I don't remember exactly what I what
doing, nor was I running under gdb, so no backtrace.  I also have
another observation, which seems to be reproducible, though I haven't
tested it extensively: if I type `i' on any directory entry in Dired,
which makes Emacs hang, then type `C-g' to unhang Emacs, then type `i'
on a *higher* directory entry in the same Dired buffer, whose name
begins with `.' (e.g. `.bzr'), then `i' works as expected.  This appears
to hold for all higher dotted (and only dotted) directory entries; but
if I type `i' on a *lower* dotted directory entry, then Emacs again
hangs.
