Don't be sorry; be thankful!

FWIW, I don't even know what "BDF font" is.

I don't know, because I probably couldn't use emacs effectively for
long enough with those options to reproduce the problem.  It happens
about once a day.

It crashes seemingly at random; usually when I'm typing, but almost
always in the same place.  I've done everything I know how to,
including undocumented things like recompiling emacs with GLYPH_DEBUG
and no optimization, and starting emacs under the visual studio
debugger.  I'm at a loss.  None of my other regular programs are
crashing, but then I don't use anything except possibly IE as much as
I use emacs.
