I haven't had chance to perform the test under GDB.  I have a few
additional information to this problem.  The problem seems to have
nothing to do with table.el.  It is a GUI problem.

1. The problem may be the build platform specific as it appears to be
   related to the windowing system.  I am building my emacs on Windows
   XP using mingw.

2. When the problem once starts menubar contents do not change
   regardless of the mode where point is at.  The last menubar content
   is stuck.  The last remaining menu responds to mouse event and
   functions correctly.

3. When this problem starts the mouse click on a window does not
   change the focus.  The point, the highlighted window status bar all
   remains the same regardless of mouse click.
