I later added a 'continue' in here as Breakpoint 6 in the output.

Not sure if the attached gdb output is any useful. Here is what I did:

- emacs -Q 
- M-x server-start
- gdb stuff, breakpoints + loading .gdbinit
- Started an xterm of dimensions (maybe 20-25 rows)
- emacsclient -t
- key presses (none of them is C-x C-f)
- Breakpoint 1 being hit and requiring me to type 'cont' on every hit
- After some 'cont' inputs, I deleted it, and re-added it as Breakpoint 6 with
 'continue' as mentioned above.
- Breakpoint 6 being continuously hit
- C-x 5 0 in emacsclient window
- appended '====EMACSCLIENT STOPPED====' to logfile
- emacsclient -t
- Breakpoint 6 being hit
- I resized window to 4-5 rows in an effort to reduce no. of redraw messages
- Killed gdb after 2 minutes, which killed emacs.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks
