In a continuing effort to track down the cause of the mysterious crashes that
some Emacs users have reported, I'm now wondering if these are caused by the
stack being too small.
Apparently this is not the cause
Since most of the reported problems are with emacs-w32 on 64-bit Cygwin and are
reported by very few people, I'd like to try to find out if there are any common
patterns among the people getting these crashes.
If you use emacs-w32 on 64-bit Cygwin, I would appreciate it if you would send
me the following information, off-list. (I will then summarize the reports back
to the list.)
1. How much uptime do you typically have (i.e., how long do you normally keep
emacs running without a problem)?
2. Does emacs-w32 ever crash? If so, how often?
3. Tell me about your system. Attaching the standard cygcheck output is
probably the best way to do this.
Please confine this to emacs-w32 on 64-bit Cygwin. If you have problems to
report with other emacs builds, make a separate report in the usual way.
