I just installed a big mess of windows updates and rebooted, and ever
since emacs seems to have trouble with subprocesses: when attempting to
read mercurial revision info for a file or running make, it sometimes
freezes for 5-10 seconds without doing anything at all (no disk, no
cpu), then suddenly responds lightning fast as if nothing had happened.
It doesn't happen every time, and I don't get any of the usual fork
failure error messages (plus I just barely rebased to no avail).
I'm perfectly willing to blame this on Windows, but does anybody have
pointers on how I might diagnose the issue?
Have you disabled Windows Defender?
Does anybody know how to really uninstall Windows Defender? None of the
tips I can find online seem effective. It's like a virus the way it
keeps sneaking back!
Meanwhile, I guess I'll just have to puppy guard the darn thing.
