I have not run into the problem in customize but I have gotten a similar
backtrace.  I have the following code in my .emacs file:

(add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook
	  '(lambda ()
	     (make-local-hook 'after-save-hook)
	     (add-hook 'after-save-hook
		       '(lambda ()
			  (byte-compile-file buffer-file-name)) 
		       nil t)))

and get this backtrace:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (args-out-of-range 155 2666)
  count-lines(2666 155)
  display-warning(bytecomp "Args out of range: 155, 2666" :error "*Compile-Log*")
  byte-compile-log-warning("Args out of range: 155, 2666" nil :error)
  byte-compile-report-error((args-out-of-range 155 2666))
  byte-compile-from-buffer(#<buffer  *Compiler Input*> "/home/rdc/.emacs")
  ad-Orig-byte-compile-file("~/.emacs" nil)
  byte-compile-file("~/.emacs" nil)

when I try to save elisp files.  I get much the same when trying to use
M-x byte-compile-file.  I had not yet made an attempt to track it down.

I still get the option to save the changes, but here is a backtrace
generated using your instructions.

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (args-out-of-range 32 301)
  count-lines(301 32)
  describe-text-properties-1(454 #<buffer *Help*>)

You are correct, sir.
