Re: buffer.c/buffer.h: How to add new buffer-local variables?

Is it possible that a038df77de7b1aa2d73a6478493b8838b59e4982 broke the ability 
for Emacs to maintain the value of certain WINDOW Lisp_Object defined in 

Here is a snippet from a modified window.h.  All of the WINDOW caches for the 
fake cursors are coming back as INVALID_LISP_OBJECT.  A test for NILP on those 
invalid lisp objects comes back TRUE, and subsequent functions fail when trying 
to process the object that reports as being "DEAD" in gdb printouts.  This 
happens on the NS and w32 ports of Emacs.  I have not tested X11, but I assume 
the result will be the same.

If it is highly unlikely that a038df77de7b1aa2d73a6478493b8838b59e4982 is the 
culprit, then I would imagine that the culprit is somewhere between March 28, 
2019 and today.  If anyone would like me to start going back in time to test 
other comments between March 28, 2019 and today, please let me know ....
