The crashes on my machine are (almost) invariably tied to the following

I am reading news/mail with gnus.
I switch a couple of times between emacs and other applications
I go back to gnus and continue reading or request new news with the 'g'
command in *Groups*.
Emacs hangs
I try to get it out of the hang by hitting C-g once or several times.

These crashes happen sometimes several times a day.

It was my impression that it could be related to something like screen
redrawing or redrawing the menu, that corrupts some memory or doesn't
cooperate properly with GC.
