Currently Emacs heisenbugs are having a field day in my computer. I'd
like to request some assistance in evening the score if possible.

These are heisenbugs and furthermore in my own xwidget branch, so if
all this sounds like useless whining, please just disregard. A guy needs
to went now and then.

- The recent bidi change seemed to introduce some visual artifacts
  sometimes during scrolling. Sometimes the screen gets scrolled in
  small rectangular regions but not all areas. It could be my branch
  code but I dont think so, because my code is the bestest. It could
  also be GTK3 + Bidi. This heisenbug is endurable because I can make
  the display right by requesting a redraw.

- Gnus usualy hangs for me with a flaky network but its much worse
  recently with the gnutls stuff. Sometimes I get a message like:

"gnutls.c [0] (Emacs) fatal error: The specified reason has been
invalidated for some reason."

- I run Emacs in gdb all the time but it doesn't really help
  recently. Emacs hangs so hard gdb can't interrupt. Sometimes I can
  at least get a backtrace by sending a SIGHUP signal. Usualy the hang
  is in accept_process_output initiated from Gnus.

- bzr currently hangs, at the savannah end(Okay, I just like to whine
  a bit)

- Hey, Martins new window code at least doesn't give me troubles!

- Since Emacs now crashes/hangs many times a day, desktop mode helps
  me a lot. Can I make it save the state more often?
