So with pdumper, I should always invoke ~/Repos/el/emacs/src/emacs
instead of the symlink in my PATH pointing to it?

When I start emacs using my symlink pointing to
~/Repos/el/emacs/src/emacs, I get the above output and the original
wrong-type-argument error according to my recipe.

Already fixed by Daniel.

I don't get them with run -Q, so I guess it's something in my init file.
When I try again, now I only get 21 vforks instead of the 132 I've had

If I were keen to know what's the cause, how would I find out?
