By default, the "command" key in MacOS is bound to "super". If I type
s-$, Emacs seems to wait for input that it never receives. Anything I
type afterward appears to be ignored, except `ESC ESC ESC', which gets
Emacs out of this state. However, even hitting `C-g' repeatedly does

The issue seems to be related to the command key rather than to "super"
or to the command bound to the key. In my configuration, I map command
to meta, and the same problem happens when I use M-$ to `ispell-word'.

Using `M-$' with command as meta worked until relatively recently. It
would be great if it could be brought back or made to fail more

Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.

Mattias Engdegård updated this section of the manual as part of
bug#38296, so I'm closing this bug report.
