Thanks.  Now I know why this cannot be reproduced on Windows: this is
bug#17524 coming back to haunt us.  That bug was reported on Windows,
I fixed it on Windows, then suggested a similar fix for X, but was
told it didn't help there.

So now please try making a fix on X similar to commit ebdc80316, and
if that indeed doesn't help with this crash, perhaps some simple
variation of that will.

TIA
