   When you get in a situation where a certain operation reliably fails,
   you can try to observe why.

OK.  Basically, I meant that it _does_ reliably fail.  So now I think
it should just a matter of time 'til that happens, and then I'll do

   When you have an Emacs process in which edebug reliably fails when you
   do a certain thing, you can try inserting (debug) in various places in
   code in edebug.el that ought to run when you do the thing that fails,
   then do that certain thing, and see where control gets to and where it
   does not get to.  You can also look at values of variables inside
   edebug this way.

   With some luck, you'll figure out the bug.

OK, thanks.

   This will require learning something about how edebug.el works.
   You must not set yourself the goal of avoiding learning that.

Groan... OK :)
