Thank you for the tips.

I have not seen the crashes any more (before the change, I saw emacs crash a few times a week...)

BUT, I noticed a strange swap usage and excessive paging now and then lately and not sure what it was.
Maybe it is because of this bug 26952. I will recompile emacs.

Yes, it is too bad that emacs has become a little unstable.
Maybe the distributed souce code management system may have something to do with it. Before, developers were very careful and use only a single master repository thus messing it up would have been a cardinal sin, but nowadays, people can create various branches and merge them (at least so that it builds/compiles). BUT, the runtime behavior may suffer.
Just my guess.

Thank you again!

Happy Hacking (as RMS used to say)

I think it is likely that I have ralloc.o.
Let me re-compile emacs with the suggested additional
and work with it for a few weeks.
Based on the frequency of the crashes I observed if the new binary
does not crash in a month, the bug would have been solved.

Since it's been over 2 months, I'll close the bug.  By the way, if you
can upgrade to 25.2 you might be better off configuring with
REL_ALLOC=yes, as disabling ralloc can lead to excessive memory
consumption (see https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=26952).
