This is fixed, see and friends.

I’ve also seen something related to this, I think. See the
comments in #'easy-menu-add,

and the thread starting with

Happily it only seems to be relevant in code run immediately
after startup.

In the process of producing the patch for the isearch crash recently
discussed, I produced a test of the form

  (execute-kbd-macro vector-of-keystrokes))

I saved it to a file, and ran xemacs -vanilla, then M-x load-file RET
search-crash.el RET, and XEmacs didn't crash.  The reason was that
instead of being executed in the temp buffer, it was executed in
*scratch*, which contained the usual leading comment, so the buffer
underrun didn't happen.

Is this expected behavior?

I'll try to remember to produce a real test case tomorrow, but I need
some sleep now....
