Here is the simplest example I can come up with that causes the problem.

Thanks, that does it - I tried adding menu-or-popup-active-p around it but it didn't help -

(defun foo ()
  (if (not (menu-or-popup-active-p))

(run-at-time nil 2 'foo)

Maybe there's some other way to tell if a gui window is showing / waiting for input? Then as a workaround I could just skip checking the clipboard.

I looked at some of the internals - as Eli said there's an event loop for the x dialog that also checks the existing Emacs timers, which in this case would be checking the x selection and starting another timer.

I'm not sure why that would cause a hang though, if the x selection returns immediately.

Thanks again for your help in tracking this down - I'll keep tracing through the code to see if I can figure out what's going on, and why menu-or-popup-active-p doesn't help.
