Emacs can be made to crash simply by evaluating (sit-for 4) in the scratch
buffer and typing C-g before four seconds elapse.

It's due to this change:

2006-08-01  Kim F. Storm  <address@hidden>

        * process.c (wait_reading_process_output_unwind): New function.
        Restores waiting_for_user_input_p to saved value.
        (wait_reading_process_output): Unwind protect waiting_for_user_input_p
        instead of save/restore old value on stack.

Presumably wait_reading_process_output is interrupted before it can do:

  unbind_to (count, Qnil);
