Launched with -Q, to see whether effects I encounter in customised copy might be due to the customisation. Here in a *compilation* buffer the compilation of GCC happens – 100,000 or so lines of output. When I want to go the bottom of the buffer and type ESC-> the wristwatch cursor appears. It can stay of minutes, maybe even longer. No movement of the text in the buffer happens. But when I press C-g the cursor is at once at the end of the buffer and is pushed further forward from the output just happening.

I have the impression that a few thousand lines have to be between the point where I type ESC-> and the end of the buffer – and maybe text insertion has to happen. One constraint could also be heavy CPU load and GNU Emacs swapped out due to leaving it untouched for hours. It behaves very inert when I pick it to be the active X client. The cursor appears after seconds and heavy disk activity is indicated.

A kind of divine inspiration, or sacred fire affecting censorious critics of this dictionary.
