As I mentioned earlier this seems to be due to the fact that the
debugger intervenes in some recursive fashion.  The crash happens after
the backtrace window popped up and when I try to ‘switch-to-prev-buffer’
in the window where the tooltip should have appeared.  Without that I'm
_not_ able to reproduce the crash.

What makes you think this is not my normal frame in the first place and
why init_frame_faces was not called for it?  Hmmm, I see, nothing can
stop make_image_cache apparently.  I'll look into this later - sounds
like a thunderstorm approaching and I'll rather switch off my machine.

How would I know?  I never see one because I build without image

The toolbar is disabled with my customizations.
