Well, I haven't been able to get that particular failure to happen
again, but unfortunately, I'm still seeing other problems.

    Overran end of memory range: start = 0x14f2a308, end = 0x15040000,
    prev = 0x14f2a310, current = 0x181ff7f0

Usually, it's just a scrambled object:

    Error: (272629760 . 301989888) is not a Lisp string or pointer.

(The error is from cffi, but it's not expecting a cons with two
unusual numbers in it).

    Error: value (#\H . 0) is not of the expected type (SATISFIES

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a pattern here, and most of
them aren't caught until something tries to examine the corrupted
