[Bug 1514885] [NEW] Emacs hangs upon yank from X clipboard


Public bug reported:

I routinely copy text from other applications such as Chromium and
Ctrl-Y to paste into Emacs. This worked fine as of Xubuntu 15.04. After
upgrading to 15.10 (emacs24 24.5+1-1ubuntu2), the yank operation
frequently hangs, freezing Emacs for perhaps a minute, not interruptible
with Ctrl-G. Eventually it recovers (but pastes something other than the
current clipboard contents). Once the problem starts happening, I cannot
paste into my Emacs window without a hang, making it a blocker for
routine usage.

I found http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=16737 which linked
to https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2015-07/msg00106.html
from which I found
that seems to be a backport to Emacs 24. Please make sure Ubuntu picks
up this fix.
