Strange one here... I just updated emacs and a bunch of other
packages, and for some reason 'emacs -nw' now backgrounds itself
immediately after starting, and again each time I try to foreground it
afterward. If I run emacs-X11 directly (again, in -nw mode) it
segfaults during startup, but I haven't been able to catch it in the
act using gcc (it seems to load properly under gcc but keyboard
handling is worthless). Cygcheck output is attached.
I've tried running a home-built emacs-23.3.1 and it behaves the same
way; running the same home-built binary against an older install I
happened to have laying around works normally, so some library update
must be the culprit. To help narrow things down a bit, a diff of old
vs. new cygcheck outputs is also attached.
