Subject: HEADSUP to Emacs users
In a continuing effort to track down the cause of the mysterious
that some Emacs users have reported, I'm now wondering if these are
caused by the stack being too small.
If you have been experiencing crashes, please issue the following
command (as administrator, while emacs is not running):
peflags -x0x80000 /usr/bin/emacs-*.exe
This increases the stack size to 8MB. And please let me know if you
any improvement as a result.
Can that command be run harmlessly while emacs happens to be running?
No. It actually changes the executable.
(.bash_profile seems like a natural place to put it,
There's no need. You just have to run it once, and then emacs will
always use an 8MB stack after that.
