Thank you, Eli, for looking at issue #32351.

There is no error message, just a never-ending loop.  Source code line numbers 
in fns.c match up with 07/07/2018 master branch bearing commit 
98463bed07ecc9057094928ffdc2321eaaf3ab52.  This is my working build with 
feature requests (crosshairs and multiple fake cursors).  No reversions have 
been made to fns.c.

The general circumstances with a full configuration are as follows:

1.  Original single window in a GUI frame with native line numbers and 
truncate-lines non-nil.

2.  Try to create/display a new window to the right that takes up approximately 
95 percent of the overall frame; e.g., my custom 12 month rotating calendar.  
[A workaround would be "well, if it hurts, then don't do that".  However, it 
would be nice to come up with a programmatic solution to avoid a never-ending 

3.  Emacs tries to display line numbers on the little sliver of a 
tall/razor-thin window.  However, redisplay never finishes so the new window is 
not yet displayed and all that is visible to the naked eye is the full-size 
original window.

4.  assq_no_quit goes into a forever never-ending loop.

5.  C-z in the terminal to break with gdb.

6.  Step:  while (CONSP (list)

7.  Step:  list = XCDR (list);

8.  Repeat stepping to infinity; e.g., step 500 yields the same results as 
paragraph 6/7 above.

I can reproduce this on my end every time, so if there is anything you would 
like to see with gdb, I'd be happy to print.  However, I may need some guidance 
regarding how to do it, since I just know the basics such as pp OBJECT, print, 
step and so forth.  I anticipate having some time in the evenings over the 
weekend and can work on trying to come up with an Emacs -Q recipe.
