Are you saying that you get stackdumps while using emacs?  You didn't 
mention that in any of your earlier posts.  If that's the case, please 
try to give a precise recipe for reproducing the problem, starting with 
'emacs -Q'.  If that's not the case, and all you did was to install 
emacs without actually using it, then it can't possibly have anything to 
do with your problem.
