I've recently switched to GNU Emacs 21.2.1 on Suse Linux 7.3. It works
quite nice but sometimes I have a strange problem:
The mouse pointer changes into a blue "buisy" clock. In this state, I
cannot use the mouse pointer for marking or pasting. It says in this
state quite a while until I type in something with the keyboard.
Sorry that I'm not more specific but I couldn't recognize any pattern yet.
PS. Something different: I happily admit that providing a bar of icons,
comprising such complex tasks as "search forward for a string", is a
mayor step forward in the evolution of Emacs. How to get rid of it?
