That's the first row of desired_matrix.

Great, thanks.  So here's the next step: we set a hardware watchpoint
on the enabled_p flag of that glyph row, and see who sets it.  You
will need to remove that line which fixed the problem, I guess.

Below please find the transcript of what I did to set up the snare:

 (gdb) break Fredraw_display
 (gdb) r -Q

Inside Emacs:

  ; Put the following in *scratch*
  (setq display-line-number t)
  C-x C-e 
  M-x eww RET https://revoked.badssl.com/ RET
  M-x redraw-display RET

Now GDB kicks in, so:

  3031      FOR_EACH_FRAME (tail, frame)
  (gdb) p selected_window
  $1 = XIL(0xa000000001b4e6f0)
  (gdb) p XWINDOW(selected_window)->contents
  $2 = XIL(0xa000000007047b30)
  (gdb) p XWINDOW(selected_window)
  $3 = (struct window *) 0x1b4e6f0 <dumped_data+3998768>
  (gdb) p XWINDOW(selected_window)->contents
  $4 = XIL(0xa000000007047b30)
  (gdb) xtype
  (gdb) xbuffer
  $5 = (struct buffer *) 0x7047b30
  (unsigned char *) 0x6ffc1ec "*eww*"
  (gdb) p XWINDOW(selected_window)->desired_matrix
  $6 = (struct glyph_matrix *) 0x6850008
  (gdb) p XWINDOW(selected_window)->desired_matrix->rows
  $7 = (struct glyph_row *) 0xfae158
  (gdb) p XWINDOW(selected_window)->desired_matrix->rows->enabled_p
  $8 = false
  (gdb) watch -l $3->desired_matrix->rows->enabled_p
  Hardware watchpoint 4: -location $3->desired_matrix->rows->enabled_p
  (gdb) commands
  Type commands for breakpoint(s) 4, one per line.
  End with a line saying just "end".
  (gdb) c

(Note that the $3 thing could be a different number in your case: it
depends on the number GDB gives to the output where it shows the
'struct window' of the selected-window.  The commands I typed after
that were just to make sure I'm in the right buffer and so the window
is indeed the one we are interested in.)

Back in Emacs, type 'q'.  This should produce several hits of the
watchpoint, and show the backtraces; post them here.

In my case, I see that prepare_desired_row sets the flag, then
update_window calls clear_glyph_matrix which resets the flag.  This is
the expected sequence: update_window is called after we've actually
redrawn the window to the glass, so it clears the glyph matrix in
preparation for the next redisplay.  In your case, I expect to see
at least one more hit, and the assertion violation.
