It appears that the CVS version is since quite a while so unstable for
me that I can't use it for daily work.  Maybe someone is working on
the bugs.  Anyway, let me give a list of problems:

1.  I can confirm the recent report
    This bug causes my Solaris machine to beep forever like with
    (while t (ding)).  I found no way to stop this except to reboot
    the machine.  I can't even login from another machine to kill the
    Emacs process.

    I had experienced this problem under other scenarios as well.  I
    don't remember when this occured first, but it was not very long
    ago.  In one case show-paren-mode was turned on and I used

2.  Same problem when actually evaluating (while t (ding)).  No way to
    stop the beeb except rebooting.  This problem occured to me just
    now, when writing this mail.  It happens also with Emacs-20.7.

3.  CVS Emacs crashes frequently.  So often that I usually use the
    stable 21.3 version.  The backtraces from gdb look similar to the
    one reported in

4.  The file-name completion problem reported on emacs-pretesters

    still exists for me.  This is an annoying bug, since I wonder once
    in a while "Where has my file gone?" or "What was the name of my
    file?", while it is just Emacs which somehow doesn't get it.

5.  The redisplay problem reported on


    still exists.

This is all on X with
GNU Emacs (sparc-sun-solaris2.9, X toolkit) of 2003-07-19
