  This problem shows up running in terminal mode on a cygwin xterm,
apparently because it sends terminal escape sequences one character at a
time (where linux usually sends the whole thing at once). To reproduce,
run the following three elisp commands:

(define-coding-system 'utf-8-echo
   "Echoes all input to the message area"
   :coding-type 'utf-8
   :mnemonic ?U
   :ascii-compatible-p t
   :charset-list '(unicode)
   :post-read-conversion 'echo-conversion)
(defun echo-conversion (len)
   (let* ((p (point))
      (e (+ p len))
      (str (buffer-substring p e)))
     (message "%s" str)
     len))
(set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8-echo)

Then start using the left arrow key to navigate. The escape sequence is
'^[OD' and every few arrow presses garbled bits of the "OD" portion will
appear in the buffer and the point doesn't move properly. A
representative sample of the message buffer looks like this:

^[
O
D
^[
O
D
O
D
^[ [2 times]
O
D

The lossage buffer (below) shows how emacs becomes very confused as a
result, reporting 'ESC O D O D D O D D ESC' at one point. Defining a
similar coding system based on iso-8859-1 instead of utf-8 causes emacs
to crash. Unfortunately, cygwin-gdb doesn't trap the signal so I can't
produce a stack trace, but sometimes it gets stuck in an endless loop
inside malloc, which suggests some sort of memory corruption is the
culprit. As far as I know, 'ESC O D' is valid in both coding systems
so that shouldn't be the problem.
