--- Begin Message --- Subject: cannot start Gnus with idna.el Date: Sat, 29 Mar 2008 08:28:45 +0900 User-agent: Gnus/5.110007 (No Gnus v0.7) Emacs/23.0.50 (berkeley-unix)

I noticed that recent CVS Emacs has a problem. For example, Gnus cannot
start if idna.el is installed in the load-path directory.

I found the problem under the combination of

o FreeBSD/i386 8.0-CURRENT (Jan 29 2008)
o Emacs 23.0.60 (CVS HEAD)
o No Gnus 0.7 (CVS HEAD)
o GNU Libidn 1.2

I checked out the HEAD yesterday morning (JST), bootstrapped with gcc4
and ran. And then, typed ( g n u s ) C-j in *scratch* buffer but nothing

Next, I evaled (setq debug-on-quit t) and saved the *Backtrace* which
says the breakpoint is in idna.el:idna-to-ascii-response(). I attach the
*Backtrace* file.

The "while" in idna-to-ascii-response() seems infinite loop.

(defun idna-to-ascii-response ()
  (while (and (eq (process-status idna-to-ascii-process) 'run)
              (null idna-to-ascii-response))
    (accept-process-output idna-to-ascii-process 1))

The idna-to-ascii-response is called from message.el and the failure
itself occurs in

(idna-to-ascii "räksmörgås")

Of cource, after I removed idna.el from any directories of load-path,
the error go away. (But there is another problem with Gnus which I'd
like to report.)


Note: this report is sent using another CVS Emacs several weeks old.

It doesn't work that way. Either send a mail to 92-done (as I did in
this mail), explaining in the body why the bug is closed; or send

close 92

at the start of the body in a message to address@hidden
