bug#6686: 24.0.50; [restore functionality] sql-mode

From: Tim Cross
Subject: bug#6686: 24.0.50; [restore functionality] sql-mode
Date: Wed, 21 Jul 2010 12:02:44 +1000

The way sql-mode works in emacs has changed and while some of the
changes are good, there is one major change that isn't. 

In previous versions of sql-mode, running queries and executing stored
procedures/functions from within the sql interactive buffer did not hold
system focus. If the command you executed was going to take some time to
run, you could switch to another buffer/frame and continue working, read
mail, use w3m etc. However, this has now changed. When you execute an
SQL command or call a stored procedure/function from within the SQLi
buffer, you are effectively locked out from doing anything else in emacs
until that command has completed. I'm guessing, but suspect this change
is due to the additional output processing that has been added to
sql-mode, such as translation of tabs to spaces etc. I have disabled as
many features as I can, but this has made no difference. 

I am using sql-mode to access an Oracle database using sqlplus.
Everything works as it always has with emacs 23 and this change only
occured in emacs 24 either late last year or early this year. 

Could we either have the old behavior restored or if that is not
possible and if the change is due to other new features, have a way of
turning the new features off and restoring the old behavior. I really
want to continue using sql-mode and *really* don't want to have to give
it up in favor of something far less pleasant to use than emacs!
