What does that timer do?

Would it work to have a non-idle timer that is started once at
startup, and then never shut down, and have its job be put on some
list that the timer will examine?

The crash happened for me when the build ran this command in

  EMACSLOADPATH= "../../src/emacs.exe" -batch --no-site-file --no-site-lisp -l 
semantic/wisent/grammar -f wisent-batch-make-parser -o 
"../../lisp/cedet/semantic/wisent/python-wy.el" python.wy

Try it, maybe it will happen to you as well.  The crash is elusive
(naturally, since it depends on how much consing was done before
that).  It happened to me in a 32-bit build with wide ints, but not
without wide ints.  Also, the build was optimized (-O2), so maybe
that, too, is a prerequisite for reproducing.
