I'd love to see a C-level backtrace from that situation, because I'm
not really sure what exactly happens and how.

"Asynchronous redisplay" could only mean the call to expose_frame, is
that right?  I'm not aware of any other asynchronous entry to
redisplay.  We could call expose_frame asynchronously if a mouse
movement caused the SIGIO signal be delivered to Emacs while
copy-sequence did its job.  The SIGIO handler then could call
gobble_input, which would read the X events from the socket, see the
Expose event and call expose_frame, or see the MotionNotify event and
call note_mouse_highlight.  However, neither of these is supposed to
call Lisp, or evaluate the mode-line format (which would call Lisp via
:eval), or at least I couldn't see any such call.  Both expose_frame
and note_mouse_highlight just redraw the glyphs that are already
computed by the previous redisplay cycle.

So I'm still unsure what is going on here.  But if indeed the above
scenario somehow ends up calling Lisp from the async redisplay,
wrapping the call to Fcopy_sequence in timer_check with block_input
and unblock_input should solve the problem, right?

Thanks.
