The "File ... changed on disk. Reread from disk? (yes or no)" prompt
works fine inside a keyboard macro. It seems that it's just the
'risky variable' question which causes the problem.
When Emacs hangs, it consumes all available CPU time. I don't think
this is acceptable:
1) it's not acceptable to use all available CPU time or to get stuck
in an infinite loop when simply attempting to open a file
2) Emacs gives no indication of what it's doing. The question isn't
displayed to the user.

It's just a bug, I think.
