** Markus Gritsch's report about Emacs looping on Windoze with the following
.emacs file, and then reduce Emacs frame width to "something quite narrow":
	(setq-default truncate-lines t)
	(custom-set-variables
	 '(hscroll-margin 20)
	 '(hscroll-step 1)

TCP/IP server processes created with `make-network-process' consume
excesive CPU on some Windows environments.  Usages of 50% and 100%
CPU time have been observed on different Window XP configurations.

Seems to be a problem in sys_select in w32proc.c.

In its current form, it sys_select says the socket is ready, so we
call server_accept_connection which again calls accept() which returns
-1 with errno == WSAEWOULDBLOCK (10035) indicating that there is no
pending connection to accept.

It seems that to fix this, w32 server sockets must use WSAAsyncSelect
+ FD_ACCEPT to request notifications of incoming connections...

* DOCUMENTATION

65 66 67
** Add a node to the Lisp manual describing key sequences from the
Lisp point of view.

68
** Check man/info.texi.
69 70 71

** Check the Emacs Lisp manual.

72 73 74 75
Each manual section should be checked for factual correctness
regarding recent changes by at least two people.  After each file
name, on the same line or the following line, come the names of the
people who have checked it.

The first line of every tutorial must begin with text ending in a period
(".", ASCII 0x2E) saying "Emacs Tutorial" in the respective language.
This should be followed by "See end for copying conditions", likewise
in the respective language.

names of the people who have checked it.
