I now suspect that is related to someone replacing a router between
the PC running Emacs and the PC running the X-server while I was away.
.. so Emacs basically lost connection to the X-server, and for some
reason it didn't recover through the new router.

So if the select was waiting for input from the X server, it would
never return.

And a C-g on the X-server cannot get to the Emacs process.

I have also found an xterm window which showed the same problem -- so
it is a generic X problem - not specific to Emacs.

I think we can forget about this problem.  Sorry for the noise.
