- Subject: Strange freezing in emacs
I just installed a big mess of windows updates and rebooted, and ever
since emacs seems to have trouble with subprocesses: when attempting to
read mercurial revision info for a file or running make, it sometimes
freezes for 5-10 seconds without doing anything at all (no disk, no
cpu), then suddenly responds lightning fast as if nothing had happened.
It doesn't happen every time, and I don't get any of the usual fork
failure error messages (plus I just barely rebased to no avail).
I'm perfectly willing to blame this on Windows, but does anybody have
pointers on how I might diagnose the issue?
