This is happening on a build from git branch emacs-24 on an Ubuntu 14.04
LTS. The problem has been occurring for all of the builds I have done. I
first did a git clone a few weeks ago. Sorry, I can't give an exact
date.

The default emacs24 package does not have this problem.

I read that if emacs freezes to use the lucid toolkit, which I did after
the first occurrence. I will try using another --with-x-toolkit value
and see if that works.
