This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (alphaev6-dec-osf4.0f, X toolkit)
 of 2001-10-22 on uranie.unice.fr
configured using `configure  --prefix=/usr/local/GNU/emacs-21.1 
--with-x-toolkit=athena --without-tiff'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: fr_FR.ISO8859-1
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

This problem seems to occur when Emacs 21 is called from a very busy
network link. Although the X authority is correctly set, everything
occurs as if was not. Here is an example:

uranie(~)40: emacs21&
[1] 4489
uranie(~)40: emacs: Cannot connect to X server presto:0.0.
Check the DISPLAY environment variable or use `-d'.
Also use the `xhost' program to verify that it is set to permit
connections from your machine.

[1]  + 4489 exit 1     emacs21
uranie(~)40: xhost
access control enabled, only authorized clients can connect
uranie(~)41: xhost +uranie
uranie being added to access control list
uranie(~)42: emacs21&     
[1] 4493

This time, after explicitly authorizing the computer, it works. In
other cases, this is not enough.
