This version of Emacs came with

You are using verilog-mode 2013-11-05-78e66ba-vpo

The problem is reproducible as follows:

Open a new buffer called "moo.sv"

Paste this text into it without the tags:
<start of file>
module moo.sv;
<end of file>

Move point to the end of the second line.

Ensure that verilog-mode is enabled.  If it is not use "M-x

Press M-?

This will open a buffer with possible completions ... there will only be
one... "initial"

Use mouse-1 to select it.

This will cause the emacs session to start using 100% of the CPU (you
should have a top session running separately to notice.  However this
process is a background process and normal editing can continue until
the process uses up all available memory.  I kill it quickly using

The expected behavior is that the "ini" is expanded to "inital" and
editing continues with point after the word "initial".

What happens is that the emacs process starts consuming 100% CPU, and
eventually consume all the available memory in the background.  The
cursor is left at the end of line 2 after the word "ini".

Here is a dribble file including the C-g.  If you delete everything
after the C-g, you will see the bad behavior.

moo.sv<return>module moo;ini<return><up> 

Another strange behavior is I tried to get a stack trace using C-g by
enabling "Enter Debugger on Quit/C-g".  When I press C-g, It does not
end up going into the debugger, but the background process what ever it
is, gets killed and CPU usage returns to normal, but no backtrace buffer
is opened.

Here is a trace of that (Again including the C-g):


I have reported the issue to the folks who support the verilog-mode, and
they have requested I open the bug with you.

The bug is reported here

The emacs-mode I used in that report is newer than the one indicated
here, but they exhibit the same issue.  The version in this report is
what comes bundled with this version of emacs, so I assumed it would be
easier for you to reproduce.

Thanks for your help.

Closing the bug report; we can reopen it later if I'm wrong.
