That's not what I intended to test: Emacs crashing on such datastructures
prevents more serious automatic tests that can, among other data, also
create such structures. So far, this shortcoming has prevented my working
further on such tests.
I find it hard to believe that a way to crash Emacs is somehow *not*
considered a bug. If that is the case, I agree with what Glenn recently
said: Just deal with this report in any way you wish.
