Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431050
emacs hangs the whole desktop when I use alt-tab
Last modified: 2008-04-19 12:02:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When I use alt-tab to switch to another app from emacs my whole desktop hangs. I
have to go to the console and kill emacs to get my desktop back. I think this is
related to my personal account so it would be nice to get some information on
what files in $HOME affects emacs' behaviour.
Attaching the obvious ones

I get the same thing, even after moving aside my .emacs file.
This is with emacs-22.1.50-3.fc9.i386
Updating priority and severity, since this makes emacs completely unusable for
me in rawhide.
This resolved itself for me now. I can't reproduce this with current rawhide.
Robin, do you see the same?
No, I still have the same problem. It may not be directly emacs-related either,
because downgrading to F-8's emacs doesn't fix it either.
it got fixed in a recent rawhide update for me. not sure what fixed it though :-/
I think this might be related to bug #224611.

The easy way to find out is to turn off atk:
System->Preferences->Personal->Assitive Technology Preferences
make sure it's turned off.
Yeah, it only happens when a11y is activated. Shouldn't this be a blocker for f9?
