In most places, it is set like this:

   w->window_end_pos = make_number (...)

And with USE_LSB_TAG, we have 

#define XFASTINT(x) XINT(x)

so I guess ENABLE_CHECKING would not catch it in that case...

All of this XFASTINT stuff seems bogus to me these days as we
move towards USE_LSB_TAG on more platforms...
