+       inhibit_garbage_collection ();

Can someone that knows ENCODE_UTF_8 and garbage collection well
comment on this patch?

I don't know either well, but of course that is not the correct way to
fix it.  The correct way would be to add appropriate GCPRO and UNGCPRO
calls for temporary data structures that should not yet be collected.

I suspect this must be done in the coding functions. This call to inhibit_garbage_collection was there about two years ago (1.234 removed it), and it is still present in macmenu.c, which is the only reason the mac port
works better.  I suspect the w32 port also has this problem, but I can't
test that port.  I'll work a bit more on this, as a temporary solution I
checked in this patch.
