I know what you mean :-)
Another ghost-in-the-machine thing I got today you'd probably like to know: I
was applying again my splash buffer patch to startup.el and menubar-items.el,
and suddenly, temacs dropped core when looking for docstring pointers. The
symptom was a failed assertion in lisp.h line 717.
Under gdb, I got in compiled_function_documentation, with a
doc_and_interactive field that was visibly corrupted (pobj would fail on it).
I don't think I've changed anything from then, but the next compilation worked
again .... As you said, the hunt is probably ot over ;-)
 BTW, how can I know the name of such a function from the
Lisp_Compiled_Function struct ?
