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

Can't replicate this by starting the Emacs -Q from the emacs src directory, setting ido-mode, and then trying "C-x C-f newdir/foo <Ret>". Is there anything unusual about which dir you sit in when executing the emacs command, or what type of dir or filename you have to type in? Do you have any NFS or other network mounts?

OK, I removed .ido.last and the problem seems to have gone away. Perhaps some sort of incompatibility between the two?

I did not have any network drives mounted.

Sorry if this was a config error that I should have figured out on my own.

Cheers,  Jody
