The preinstalled Emacs is ancient. Version 22 or something. Quite a
lot has changed since then. It also only works in the terminal so the
glyph display code is completely different.

I don’t really understand what that’s telling me. Is it possible for
you to run it under a debugger and send me a backtrace?

You’ll probably have lldb installed already, so all you need to do is

and once it freezes hit ctrl‐c and

and send me the output.
