Assuming this query is directed to me, I've seen this bug
on several TeXmacs versions, including I believe but cannot
positively state 126.96.36.199. It definitely occurs in 188.8.131.52.
It happens most frequently on two machines with small
resources running Redhat Linux 7.2 (hence an older
version of Sawmill) but it also has occurred on a
bigger machine running Redhat 7.3. On that machine
I've only seen it happen seldom, when editing a very
large (.8Mb) TeXmacs document, with quite a few other
processes such as Netscape running.
