I've thought about this some more, and I really don't understand how
this could happen.  The offending call to bidi_cache_iterator_state is
from here:

  /* Prepare the sentinel iterator state, and cache it.  When we bump
     into it, scanning backwards, we'll know that the last non-base
     level is exhausted.  */
  if (bidi_cache_idx == bidi_cache_start)
    {
      bidi_copy_it (&sentinel, bidi_it);
      if (bidi_it->first_elt)
        {
          sentinel.charpos--;   /* cached charpos needs to be monotonic */
          sentinel.bytepos--;
          sentinel.ch = '\n';   /* doesn't matter, but why not? */
          sentinel.ch_len = 1;
          sentinel.nchars = 1;
        }
      bidi_cache_iterator_state (&sentinel, 1, 0);  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    }

But this means that the cache is empty, and we can never scan back
(scan_dir = -1) when the cache is empty.  So something very strange
happened there.

Instead of me asking you gobs of questions, perhaps you could give me
an ssh login on that system, and arrange for a GDB session which
already hit the call to emacs_abort to be in a state where I can
switch to it after logging in (with 'screen' or 'tmux', I think).
Then I could look around and see if I find out some clues.

Thanks.
