On what system are you compiling?

I dimly remember that one - newer libglib made Emacs 23 freeze on
startup. See for instance


If you really care for Emacs 23.4, then I guess you could try patching
xgselect.c (I guess b05725233b might do the trick). I simply installed
the Debian 7 emacs23 package, which happens to be 23.4. :-)
