Re: Pasting from GNU/Linux into X11 Emacs running on Cygwin

The first paste from my GNU/Linux konsole session into emacs-x11 running on
Cygwin and displaying on the GNU/Linux display gets Emacs into a spin
loop.  I used to be able to C-g my way out of it, but since the latest
major Emacs update I need to send Emacs a USR2 signal, which produces
this backtrace:

Further pasting into the same Emacs (with the same selection) works just
as it's supposed to work, so I am supecting something is uninitialized
someplace that the first paste somehow rectifies except for triggering
the guru meditation.

Offhand I have no idea, but could you try emacs-26.0.91? It's available from my private Cygwin repo:
