There is some bug in IceWM or GTK. IceWM doesn't like what ediff tries to do when it redirects focus so it sends FocusOut. But GTK reasserts the focus change, so we get FocusIn, and then IceWM sends yet another FocusOut, and so on until we run out of stack. I don't think I can fix this in Emacs, sorry.

Thank you very much for this information, Jan. For now, I'll use the
Lucid toolkit version of Emacs.

If this issue cannot get fixed in Emacs, then we need an entry in the
PROBLEMS file for it, as it will hurt a lot of people. Looking back, I
am rather surprised that I was the first to notice it.

Best Regards,
