I am using ido-mode, the following works fine on previous emacsen.

If I try and open a file in a directory that does not exist, ido hangs
with a "Searching for 'newfile'..."  I have to "Force Quit" emacs.
Old Emacsen would allow me to keep typing or create a new file by
hitting return.

I can't reproduce this on GNU/Linux.  It could be a nextstep-only bug.
Could you provide an exact recipe, starting with `emacs -Q'?

/Applications/Emacs23.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs -Q
eval: (require 'ido) (ido-mode t)
C-x C-f newfi

ido says "Searching for 'newfi'...." and hangs if there is no "newfile" in the current directory.

It does seem to eventually come back, but it is a few minutes. It uses substantial cpu cycles, and there appears to be a fair bit of data being read from disk. When it comes back it has sometimes found a suitable suggestion in another directory. Thats nice, but I can't interrupt the search to type the proper name in. ido on Emacs 22 seems fine.

Please let me know how else I can help debug this.

Cheers,  Jody
