      Anyway, the latest snapshot seemingly resolved that issue as
      well, I can no longer reproduce it.

Unfortunately, only seemingly. Factually, the issue persists. And I
don't have to do anything with emacs just shoot up, wait cca. 20
seconds and it inevitably crashes, and it does so in the foreground,

$ emacs .bash_history  &
[2] 489
[1]   Done                    emacs .bash_history

[2]+  Hangup                  emacs .bash_history

$ cat emacs-w32.exe.stackdump

It is not always pipesel, I have also seen itimer. The stackdump is
sometimes an empty file as above, sometimes the same as Achim's.

Isn't it possible to put back 2.11.2 in the archives until 3.0 is made
stable? By mistake I deleted my copy and cannot find it anywhere.

best regards,
P. K.
