ediff problems

Recently when merging directories (of C/++ files) with emerge,
the Control Buffer does not appear when files are opened for

Menu: Tools/Merge.../Directories... 
No regexp filter
=h ("no" for recursive comparison)

Then clicking (or typing return) on a line will start the session
to merge two files.  

Normally, it creates three windows (two for the input files and
one for the output file) and a frame with a control buffer.
Sometimes the control buffer does not appear although it's on the
buffer list (then getting out of emerge is hard, because it does
not seem to be possible to get at the buffer in a normal frame).
Once it disappeared during merging (Emerge told me to quit
immediately because I reportedly had deleted a vital buffer).

An older problem is the following:

If the file is large, and especially if there are many
differences (eg around 100), the chances of a crash are quite

Unfortunately, I have not managed to reproduce either problem in
a predictable way.
