I wanted to try myself, and I've downloaded emacs-23.2-3 from the curr
branch. When I do start it via "/usr/bin/emacs -Q -l dbus", it results
in the well known frozen state :-(

Switching to the exp branch, there is no other package offer.

"M-x emacs-version" returns "GNU Emacs 23.2.1 (i686-pc-cygwin, GTK+
Version 2.20.1) of 2010-10-02 on laptop". That looks like a recent
build, but ...

The binary has the following checksum:

$ cksum /usr/bin/emacs
658187514 16254990 /usr/bin/emacs

Using a (self-compiled) Emacs 24, there is no freeze.
