Fwd: Emacs stuck on VMware.

I have seen this too. What I have also seen is that doing something
bad in font-lock can cause freezes. You can't even close Emacs.

This should of course never happen with a GUI app so there is some bug
here. I am not sure about how things are structured, but as I
understands it idle timers (where font locking is done) runs in the
command loop. Then the code doing the font locking or screen update
must yield to the GUI thread. I suppose it does not do that in some
parts of the code.

This not just happened in VMware, i run Emacs in Ubuntu linux (host OS).
It will freeze if i don't type anything long time.

This situation happens almost 1 times per 2 days.
I think it's something bug of elisp code.
Hope maintainer will test this bug.

elisp code is not stable enough when code is too large.
