Do you see a reference to bug#12196 in src/ChangeLog of that
distribution?  If not, then my fix is not included.

I cannot reproduce any of this on my system.  Emacs never freezes on

Does Emacs really freeze, or does it just do some prolonged operation?
(And is your CPU really an i486?)  If you wait for a long time, does
Emacs eventually recover and become responsive again?

If Emacs really freezes, attach a debugger to it when it does, type
"bt" at the debugger's prompt, and post here everything the debugger
displays in response.  Then try to follow the advice in etc/DEBUG,
under "If the symptom of the bug is that Emacs fails to respond", to
establish which Emacs function, if any, is looping.
