This bug is now fixed on the emacs-25 branch.  It was caused by a
change 2 years ago that placed a stack-allocated cons cell in a
staticpro'd list that is a value of a global variable, which isn't
cleared when that stack slot goes out of scope.

Many thanks to Reuben for letting me (ab)use his system and his time
in order to find and fix this bug.
