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.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)

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

I run Emacs in a Putty terminal window (xterm emulation), and when I
paste the contents of certain web pages I copied from Mozilla, Emacs
stops responding. For an example, select the entire 11th paragraph in
the body of the article at
(starting with "It all ran a bit out of control"). Paste it into Emacs
(shift-insert in putty). Emacs stops responding until I press C-g. It
looks like the dashes ("...were coming to see me -- everyone knows
everyone in this town -- and saying...") are the cause of the problem,
because pasting any other text in the paragraph is fine. This happens
regardless of the buffer's mode. It also happens in other terminal
emulators (SecureCRT 3.1 in Linux console emulation, for example), but
not in Windows Emacs (21.1.1, i386-msvc-nt5.1.2600), where the dashes
appear as regular hyphens ("-") in the pasted text.

For comparison, when inserting the same text, vim will also replace the
dashes with "-", and XEmacs will simply stop pasting the text when it
hits them, but not freeze.
