I have debugged further. The problem is in kbd_buffer_get_event of
keyboard.c - it does not read special events when noninteractive. The
following patch cures the problem for me:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
*** /home/albinus/src/emacs/src/keyboard.c.~108144~
--- /home/albinus/src/emacs/src/keyboard.c
*** 3801,3806 ****
--- 3801,3807 ----
  #endif        /* subprocesses */

+ #if 0  /* We want to read special events in batch mode.  */
    if (noninteractive
        /* In case we are running as a daemon, only do this before
         detaching from the terminal.  */
*** 3811,3816 ****
--- 3812,3818 ----
        *kbp = current_kboard;
        return obj;
+ #endif

    /* Wait until there is input available.  */
    for (;;)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

However, I don't know whether it has undesired side effects. What do
people think?

Best regards, Michael.
