Small note for completeness: the prompt currently uses
'/full/path/to/b' rather than just 'b'.

With emacs 24.0.50.2 (built from bzr trunk on 2011-02-24) running on
an old debian box with X tunneled to a Cygwin X server, both with and
without -Q, this actually blocks emacs from processing any keyboard
input. Menus still open, mouse events are still triggered (cursor
changes, tooltip is shown), but actual commands (whether from menu,
mouse, or keyboard) fail to work properly. Some have temporary effect
(e.g. F1/C-h show a help buffer, but it disappears almost
immediately).
Only the 4 listed keys (y/n/!/q) are accepted and cause emacs to
resume normal functionality.

For reference, this is what report-emacs-bug currently says:
In GNU Emacs 24.0.50.2 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.8.20)
 of 2011-02-24 on leeloo
Windowing system distributor `The Cygwin/X Project', version 11.0.10904000
configured using `configure  '--with-x''

I don't see this any more either.

As described above, it just does nothing for any keys other than the 4
that are explicitly allowed - no errors (also nothing in *Messages*).
