Did you try to type `C-g' (one or more times)??  What happened?

Emacs is completely frozen.

On my pc (Windows XP pro) printer has here got the value C:\PRN. That value has nothing to do with my printer, which is a Windows printer.

What exactly does this mean?

Does any Emacs variable have the value "C:\\PRN"?

The variable `printer' above.

What is a "Windows printer"?

I forgot what these printers are called. It seems like they are called "GDI printers" or "winprinters". Mine a hp laserjet 1020. (BTW there seems to exist GNU/Linux drivers for those printers today, seehttp://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/. They translate from PostScript.)

To reproduce this do for example

  emacs -Q
  M-x ps-print-buffer-with-faces
