In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600)

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug

and the precise symptoms of the bug:


When I create a keyboard macro in which I kill and yank form the EMACS kill ring and infinitely apply the macro via the "0" prefix argument, I have to make sure and not copy or kill into the Windows kill ring while the macro is running.  Otherwise this inadvertently introduces unwanted/unexpected data into the EMACS kill ring.  My macros can run for a long time on large files, so this can stop me from doing other work while I am waiting.  Or I can forget about the danger and corrupt the data I am manipulating.


A related issue is that EMACS macro's, I believe, used to run keyboard macros a *Lot* faster back in my Unix days in EMACS.  I quite suspect that the overhead of keeping the Windows kill ring consistant with the emacs kill ring is bogging the process down.


I couldn't find a version of or argument for EMACS "kill-line" or "kill-ring-save" that would help me.  I'm hoping for a solution that wouldn't require me to code and manipulation of "interprogram-cut-function" seemed to require codeing.


Anyway, thanks for the EMACS support!!!
