Not much help, but I use the below bash script to run Emacs.
That way I can get a backtrace most of the time which helps.

(I'm also suffering from some weirdo heisenbug. Lately it has been
something involving overlays and pop_it at xdisp.c:5492. It might be
something local though)

#cd to src dir to load emacs gdb macros
cd ~/build_myprojs/emacsnew/emacs.bzr/xwidget/src/
xterm -e gdb -ex run  emacs
