All I know is that he built and installed the master branch, and then
checked out the stable-2.0 branch and rebuilt, and this later build
created a Guile that crashed.  He doesn't remember what cleaning (if
any) he did between those two builds.  However, when he later did a "git
clean -dxf" and rebuilt, that fixed the problem.

I agree that this would be ideal.  If someone wants to work on this, I'd
suggest following the steps I outlined above, and trying to reproduce
the problem.
