Reliable Freeze part 2

From: D . Goel
Subject: Reliable Freeze part 2
Date: 22 Nov 2002 16:06:10 -0500


I previously reported this bug for the CVS.  The same happens both in
emacs21.2 as well as in the emacs 21.2.92 (and in the current CVS as
well), so reporting again--->

emacs -q [on an X-enabled display]. 
C-x C-f <a large file> .. of around 14399 lines.  
M-: (scroll-up 50000). 
Emacs now freezes. 

21.2 and 21.2.92 split the screen into two and show "loading view"
   before freezing. 

21.3.50 shows "loading warning" before freezing. 

The large file in question for me, was ~/TAGS, which was symlinked to
the TAGS file generated by the 'make tags' command to emacsvs. 

FWIW, 21.2 otherwise almost never freezes for me.  However, 21.3.50
freezes a lot --example, when i am doing heavy scrolling (or using
vel.el which does).  However, the above is the only freeze i know how
to produce reliably. 

(PS: I tested this on a debian testing). 

(all the tests mentioned were run today). 

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2002-03-22 on raven, modified by Debian
configured using `configure  i386-debian-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr 
--sharedstatedir=/var/lib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var/lib 
--infodir=/usr/share/info --mandir=/usr/share/man --with-pop=yes --with-x=yes 
--with-x-toolkit=athena --without-gif'
