Does the dumped Emacs crash even if you dump it immediately after
temacs starts, without loading any of the Lisp files it loads during
loading loadup.el (by hacking it to comment out all the load
commands)?  If so, perhaps the amount of calls to malloc would be much
smaller, and you could look at it.
