cvs emacs stalls with: error in process filter

User-agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.3.50

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

When I run the CVS version of emacs inside a Clearcase Vob, emacs stalls
right after the start with the following message:
error in process filter: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

Since this only happens in a clearcase Vob, I figured it should have something
to do with clearcase.el or the packages clearcase.el is using.

I'm using Kevin Esler's clearcase.el and this runs just fine in emacs 21.3.
clearcase.el uses the package tq.el and there's one change in tq.el (aside
from a few comments) that seems to cause it, i.e. the change to
set-process-filter in tq-create:

    (set-process-filter process
                        (`(lambda (proc string)
                           (tq-filter '(, tq) string))))

    (set-process-filter process
                        `(lambda (proc string)
                           (tq-filter '(, tq) string)))

When I change it back to the 21.3 version, it works fine.

Does anybody know why that was changed? If this change is necessary then
I guess the packages using tq.el (like e.g. clearcase.el) need some adaption.

There's one more thing that worries me, that I can't interrupt emacs when
this error happens.

Appreciate any help and hints.
