So it's a marker marking the start position of an overlay. It's
allocated in the same vector block as other markers and overlays, so
maybe there used to be an overlay at 0x1609db830 and someone set its
"next" pointer to NULL after it had been freed?

I'm not sure this is related, but in looking over the code I spotted a
bit of confusion in the garbage collector between checking a buffer is
"live" (in the sense that it has not been killed) and checking it's
live in the sense that it needs to be preserved by GC: evaluating this
code in *scratch* causes a segfault at least some of the time.

    (let ((temp-buffer (generate-new-buffer " *temp*")))
        (kill-buffer temp-buffer)
        (setq temp-buffer nil)))
