Can you just run XEmacs under gdb all the time?  (For me this doesn't
seem to cost anything but about 1MB of virtual memory.)  It is often
the case that the debugger is somehow able to save the backtrace,
although it can't get a good one from the core file.  The one above
says that fatal_error_signal was called literally from nowhere, which
isn't very helpful.

This says that some Lisp object was of unexpected type, but it doesn't
help us figure out how it got there.  All I can advise is caution.

The Lisp backtrace says Dired was doing something, but that's not very
helpful either (Lisp errors cannot crash XEmacs, it has to be a
problem in the C code).
