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

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.
