Thank you for the clarification. I have now read the original explanation, and it makes sense.  Ultimately, I think the sit-for is the right approach for my wait-for-any-process-or-input problem.  Am I right to assume  it's not affected by your explanation, and that I can expect immediate return there?

If so, there's some unfortunate combination of factors that cause a hard-to-reproduce hang in Emacs, at least in the packages where I use it.  But that's a matter for a future issue...

I didn't investigate the difference in behavior between Windows and
GNU/Linux, because I see similar behavior on both systems if I
neutralize all the "contaminating" factors which I described.  It is
possible that it's easier to get the 30-sec delay on Windows because
keyboard input works without signals there, and uses messaging between
2 threads running within the Emacs process.

In any case, my point is that your expectation for immediate return is
incorrect, and I tried to explain why.
