This segfault is here:

  static void
  reconsider_clip_changes (struct window *w)
    struct buffer *b = XBUFFER (w->contents);

    if (b->clip_changed
        && w->window_end_valid
        && w->current_matrix->buffer == b
        && w->current_matrix->zv == BUF_ZV (b)
        && w->current_matrix->begv == BUF_BEGV (b))   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
      b->clip_changed = false;

So either w or b is a NULL or garbled pointer.  Can you tell which
one?  (Let me know if you need help with GDB commands to do that.)
