It works fine now.

   Can't reproduce that with `emacs -q --no-site-file' and
   M-: (while t (ding)) RET on my GNU/Linux machine.
   It's probably platform dependent.

I tried it this way:  From the terminal command line login (No X) on
my Solaris machine I logged into a GNU/Linux machine and called `emacs
-q --no-site-file' (the current CVS version in a terminal) and then
did M-: (while t (ding)) RET.  Again a non-stoppable beeb.  This time
it was even worse.  I had to plug off power brutally to stop it.  At
least I did not know better.  But I guess you are right that it is
platform dependent.


   When did this start happening ?  Does it date back to February ?


   Can you try and recompile with -DGC_CHECK_MARKED_OBJECTS ?

I'll do and wait for new crashes and backtraces.

   Could somneone resend it to a more appropriate place ?

Simon just told me that he doesn't experience it any more and
suggested to discuss it with Dave Love.  I'll try come back to this
when I have time.

   Yes, I also see it sometimes.  But I don't know how to debug it and
   I can't reproduce it on demand.  Have you found a recipe to reproduce
   the problem ?

Yes.  See
