I think I've fixed this one, please tell me if it occurs again.

Can't reproduce that with `emacs -q --no-site-file' and
M-: (while t (ding)) RET on my GNU/Linux machine.
It's probably platform dependent.

When did this start happening ?  Does it date back to February ?
Can you try and recompile with -DGC_CHECK_MARKED_OBJECTS ?
Also what do you mean by "look similar" ?
Can you show us a few of your backtraces and try give us an idea
of what you'd done before Emacs crashed ?

Could somneone resend it to a more appropriate place ?

Yes, I also see it sometimes.  But I don't know how to debug it and
I can't reproduce it on demand.  Have you found a recipe to reproduce
the problem ?
