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:

Concerns clearcase.el version "ClearCase-version: </main/laptop/116>"
Running under NT.

When including a line like 

     (require 'clearcase)

in my .emacs file, startup process hangs with the message

   "Buffer *clearcase-lsregion* has subprocess(es) running; kill anyway?
(yes or no)"


I analized the reason as follows.

In the initialising section (the last top-level call
of (progn ...), there is a line

        (setq clearcase-servers-online (clearcase-registry-server-online-p))

which refers to

      (defun clearcase-registry-server-online-p ()
        "Heuristic to determine if the local host is network-connected to
        its ClearCase server(s)."
          (if clearcase-lt
                (clearcase-lt-registry-server-online-p)
                    (clearcase-non-lt-registry-server-online-p)))

The code of the function clearcase-non-lt-registry-server-online-p
ends with

     ...
    (if result
        (kill-buffer buf))
    result))

This (kill-buffer buf) causes the a.m. message. Normally the 

     (kill-process process) 

a few lines before should garuantee, that there is no process 
running in that buffer. In fact, the process is finished at 
any time I test it interactively. So there is obviously some
timing problem that the process isn't finished at that time and
so the reported question ist displayed in the mini-buffer.

For my installation I just commented out the two lines:

;    (if result
;        (kill-buffer buf))

with the drawback, that the buffer isn't killed but with the 
advantage that the startup process isn't interrupted.
