I've encountered only one problem so far:
If I start emacs-w32 from a mintty without launching dbus-daemon first and use
any command that should bring up a dialog box, then Emacs hangs up hard and
can't even be killed from Cygwin. You have to end its misery from the task
emacs-w32 shouldn't require dbus-daemon, as far as I know. This sounds
like a bug. Could you give me a specific recipe for reproducing the
problem? And it couldn't hurt to send cygcheck output also.
manager (the Gtk build will also hang up on you in a slightly different way
after you close the dialog box it has shown). I believe this is related to pipe
handling as you'll get messages about broken pipes sometimes.
Again, please send a recipe for producing the problem with the Gtk build.
Anyway, since it's not obvious that and why emacs-w32 would need dbus to
function I thought I should mention it here. I would prefer if it was only
needed for the Gtk build, otherwise I'll have to come up with a wrapper script
that ensures dbus is started.
If it turns out to be necessary, which I doubt, you can simply put the
following in your .bashrc (assuming you use bash as your shell):
if [ -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ] ; then
eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax`
