It sounds like switching workspaces is relevant to the issue at hand.
Can you try moving the mouse pointer off the Emacs frame before
switching to the workspace where Emacs isn't visible, and moving the
mouse pointer to a place where it won't be on any Emacs frame before
switching back?  If you do that, do the crashes still happen?

Also, which window manager is the one you use?

Thanks.  Next thing I'd like you to try is this simple band-aid:

diff --git a/src/xdisp.c b/src/xdisp.c
