Can you reproduce the crash if, instead of putting the above in
.emacs, you put it in a file named foo.el and invoke Emacs like this:

   emacs -Q -l foo.el

or maybe even "emacs -Q" and then "M-x load-file RET foo.el RET"?  I'm
asking because it's a hassle to move aside my .emacs and/or edit it.
Doing this with a different file starting from "emacs -Q" is much more
