Ok, here the last working revision:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
changeset:   123952:4d87702c495a
user:        Paul Eggert <address@hidden>
date:        Mon Dec 03 13:07:47 2012 -0800
summary:     * bytecode.c, lisp.h (Qbytecode): Remove.

And the crash reappear when I compile from here:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

user:        Paul Eggert <address@hidden>

summary:     Don't let call-process be a zombie factory.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Hope that help.
