** 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 server processes do not work on Windows.

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...

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.
