The crash does not happen with the -Q option, only with my init
file. The recipe to make the crash is


Actually, it is not the Elisp manual as such that is problematic, but
any manual bundled with Emacs causes the crash, while other manuals are
OK. I suspect that the difference is because of the gzipping of these
bundled manual.

I tried to start Emacs from gdb (the latter started from an MSYS
console) but then I got that xbacktrace is not supported. And the crash
happened earlier, just with `C-h i'.

I think I should try with a simpler init file --- to find the smallest
thing causing the crash, but I have not yet done this investigation.

This was introduced in r117806 (alloca doesn't like negative arguments).

Fixed in trunk revision 117918.
