Emacs from Git as of revision 4817a832f49, which corresponds to the
bzr trunk as of revision 103065, crashes in find_interval() when I
move around grep buffers:

Steps to reproduce:
1) Start ./src/emacs -nw in the top-level of the source tree
2) Do M-x grep-find RET emacs RET
3) Do C-x 0 to maximize the window with *grep* buffer
4) Move around with C-v/M-v until it crashes

This may be related bug #7920, but I'm not sure.

I found the reason.  It had nothing to do with intervals: in an Emacs
compiled with -DENABLE_CHECKING the crash happens earlier, inside
set_point_both, because the value of point passed to it is greater
than the buffer size.

The problem is that the new fontification in Grep buffers can modify
buffer text, e.g. when it finds an escape sequence emitted by Grep.
The other part of the puzzle is that vertical-motion, called from
window_scroll_line_based as part of handling M-v or C-v, enters
redisplay, which triggers JIT Lock fontification.  Here's the
Lisp-level backtrace from GDB; note the call to replace-match:

"replace-match" (0x82d760)
"progn" (0x82d940)
"eval" (0x82da14)
"font-lock-fontify-keywords-region" (0x82dc54)
"font-lock-default-fontify-region" (0x82de94)
"font-lock-fontify-region" (0x82e1f8)
"run-hook-with-args" (0x82e1f4)
"byte-code" (0x82e3a0)
"jit-lock-fontify-now" (0x82e774)
"jit-lock-function" (0x82eae4)
"scroll-down" (0x82f674)
"scroll-down-command" (0x82f8f4)
"call-interactively" (0x82fb84)

So the value of point saved by window_scroll_line_based becomes
invalid after vertical-motion returns, and the rest is history.

I fixed this on the trunk (revision 104055).  Emacs-23 branch has the
same problem, but I'd like to hear Stefan's and Chong's opinion
whether to install this change there as well (since Grep buffer
fontifications that trigger this problem were only introduced on the
trunk, and since the code in question survived without changes since
the 1990s).
