   I can't tell what you mean.  Are you saying that if you hit C-g, emacs
   successfully quits, beeps, returns to the top-level keystroke loop,
   and that another C-g then forces a suspend?  Suppose there's a
   thirty-minute interval between?

I mean that if you hit C-g, wait a million years, and hit C-g once more,
emacs will put you in its escape mode.
