Re: Cygwin and Emacs: How to exit?

Are you invoking emacs in its own X window, or embedded within the
same console where the shell was (in which case, which console are
you using)?  Also, I have noticed times where emacs hangs on exit,
or unexpectedly core dumps.  The last emacs package maintainer has
gone missing in action, so I have been trying to update emacs against
a more recent cygwin dll, but have not had success so far.  Because
the build is rather old, and because emacs does some strange things
with memory, it is a rather sensitive to changes in the cygwin dll.

and sending the output of 'cygcheck -svr' as a text attachment will
help us diagnose your setup.
