Except for those changes (and there have been quite a lot on top of
each other!), I only see the following (related) change which may be
at play here:

2006-02-26  Stefan Monnier  <address@hidden>

        * lisp.h (struct specbinding, specpdl_ptr): Remove the volatile
        qualifier which was trying to avoid the bug that was fixed by
        yesterday's changes to xterm.c.
