debug-on-signal doesn't work because the debugger is suppressed during
redisplay (to avoid recursion).  I think the signal-hook-function might
have worked (though I forgot to tell you to check the value of
bug-35273-last-backtrace afterwards) but it would only have a single
frame of "redisplay" so it would be useless.

The xdisp.c:31836 at revision 05d53d888 has

                help_echo_pos = charpos;

And neither note_mouse_highlight nor mouse_face_overlay_overlaps call
marker_position, so I'm confused how we got there.  note_mouse_highlight
does call Fmarker_position, but that one doesn't signal an error.

Maybe the debug info is messed up by optimization.  Could you try
recompiling with CFLAGS='-O0 -g3'?
