Today I got another crash at the same point (using the same built as

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
x_catch_errors_unwind (dummy=9829361)
    at [...]/emacs/src/xterm.c:7530

In both gdb sessions I get:

(gdb) p x_error_message
$1 = (struct x_error_message_stack *) 0x0
(gdb) pr
(gdb) p x_error_message->dpy
Cannot access memory at address 0xc8

(If this is not what you asked for, could you please tell me which gdb
command I should use?)

As I didn't have any crash since November [1] and now two crashes at
the same spot with the 2006-02-08 built, I suspect that one of these
changes (from Stefan) might trigger it:

| revision 1.893
| date: 2006-01-23 22:08:13 +0000;  author: monnier;  state: Exp;  lines: +2 -1
| (x_catch_errors_unwind): Yet another int/Lisp_Object mixup.
| ----------------------------
| revision 1.892
| date: 2006-01-23 02:44:02 +0000;  author: monnier;  state: Exp;  lines: +36 
| Avoid allocating Lisp data from code that can be run from a signal handler.
| (x_error_message): New var to replace x_error_message_string.
| (x_error_catcher, x_catch_errors, x_catch_errors_unwind)
| (x_check_errors, x_had_errors_p, x_clear_errors, x_error_handler)
| (syms_of_xterm): Use it instead of x_error_message_string.

Should I build again?  Should I enable additional checks

Bye, Reiner.
