I had (still have, in a way) a bug in XEmacs 19.14 (xemacs_19.14-1)
that looked very similar, although it was reported fixed in 19.15.
(make-frame) always crashed with a stack trace like yours after
displaying an XFace in Gnus (or elsewhere). I have a small script
that demonstrates this bug, if you'd like to test your XEmacs.
I "fixed" it myself by a (setq features (delq 'xface features)).
