This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

A few weeks ago Philippe Waroquiers posted that on HP-UX 11 emacs 21.1
can't be interrupted in an infinite lisp loop.

Under HP-UX 10.20 there's the same problem. C-g doesn't interrupt an
infinite loop in emacs 21.1, but it works with 20.7.  I tried Philippes
suggestions below:

The behavior on HP-UX 10.20 is very similar to what Philippe described.
UNBLOCK_ATIMERS is replaced with an empty line.
But defining POSIX_SIGNALS replaces UNBLOCK_ATIMERS with:

  sys_sigunblock ( ({   sigset_t _mask; sigemptyset (&_mask);
        sigaddset (&_mask,  14   );     _mask;  })  )  ;

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to have any effect. Still can't interrupt.

Any hints what and how to investigate further?
