So your emacs dies with a segfault, same as mine did.  But not on the
same line (or perhaps there's been code changes in that area since
march, I haven't checked).  WRT the Subject of this thread, I'd say
definitely a bug.

The next steps would be to get a backtrace, and perhaps look at some
variables, to figure out the context in which it dies.  Take a look at
etc/DEBUG in the emacs sources for tips and hints.  And then file a bug,
and either hope for the guidance of those more knowledgeable in the ways
of the source, or dig in yourself.  Wonderful learning opportunity :)

This must be Thursday.  I never could get the hang of Thursdays.
