OK, that explains why I don't see it on Linux, I'm currently using trunk there.

Understood. s/should/must/

BTW, as noted elsewhere in the thread, the hang was apparently triggered by the
attempt to use an X11 font in the W32 build via custom-set-faces (due to the
fact that both builds used the same .emacs and customization), so it does not
happen with emacs -Q.  In fact, I've not been able to even try using that font
any other way so far, both "--font" and "--eval '(set-default-font" correctly
refuse to use this undefined font.  Why it manages to bypass that guard when
invoked via custom-set-faces I need to check again.
