Weird X crash


I have been having lately X crash when I try to input a single character in Emacs 26.1 window when using a keyboard different from the default one. In my case, apart from the default en-GB keyboard, I have also Italian and Bulgarian one, they both work fine - например тук - with the usual notepad style text editors like pluma, gedit and gvim. If I try to do the same with Emacs, X crashes immediately and I get in the Xorg.0.log.old file (after the restart):

Gdb gives me:

I don't use emacs often, so am not bothered much, but it is apparently some problem.

The system is an HP Envy laptop with an Intel 530 graphics and (nonfunctional under NetBSD) GeForce 950M, running under 8.99.34 at the moment, with fully upgraded current pkgsrc, if this is of importance. As I said, it happens only with Emacs. Also, Emacs does not work under dwm or i3, it seems to put X under some sort of a lock, you can't switch workspaces anymore, one has to go to the console and kill emacs to get normal behaviour of the tiling window managers, but that is aside the main question.

Emacs is 26.1 from pkgsrc.
