The bug happens before I can select the directory, so the specific
directory doesn't matter.

I neither can reproduce it on GNU/Linux, but on Windows, it is 100%
reproducible.  Any ideas how I can obtain more useful information from
the debug buffer?  Which *.el file should I load?

One more data point: The problem also happens e.g. when starting
Gnus.  My guess is that it happen when Emacs reads a file (.cvsrc,
...) into a temp buffer.

Bye, Reiner.
