I'm afraid I can't figure out the problem with such cryptic references.
I can hope that the next version works, but that is about it. Sorry.
Please provide better information if you want to get something fixed.
Emacs isn't a small little binary where problems can be spotted in an
instant, you know.
As far as the lisp files go, one single function was changed throughout
the entire lisp directory -- totally unrelated to this. jka-compr19
was also added to get gzipped info pages working, but I doubt that was
a problem as well. jka-compr19 will be a part of Emacs 19.23.
