I am not entirely surprised. The problem is that Lisp is a twisty
maze of dependencies, all alike, and the only way to ensure that all
files needing to be rebuilt are rebuilt is a "make realclean" first.
("make beta" does this for you.) So if you are in the habit of doing
"hg pull -u; ./config.status --recheck; make" (which is normally quite
fast), you may end up with quite a bit of legacy bytecode after a
I was doing make clean before, but I guess that's not enough.
In any case, even with make realclean, configure, and make, the crash is
gone. I have not idea why the problem has disappeared.
Curiously, the old build that does crash does not have the X error or XtGrab
issue. The new build from of the same version does.
Even weirder: the old build doesn't have any buffer tabs displayed.
(Didn't notice before because I usually disable tabs). But the new build
from the same sources does have buffer tabs displayed. How can that be?
Perhaps that's the cause of the crash?
