bug#17648: 24.4.50; regression: emacsclient under screen (1) slow for so

From: Gregor Zattler
Subject: bug#17648: 24.4.50; regression: emacsclient under screen (1) slow for some values of TERM
Date: Sat, 31 May 2014 02:18:00 +0200

Dear emacs developers,

under screen with emacs from repo

emacsclient -t <some-filename>

almost instantaneously shows the scratch buffer (or some other
last used buffer), then for 2 secs nothing happens, then the
window shows the buffer which corresponds to some-file-name and
one is able to work with it.

This happens for some values of TERM.


emacs-snapshot -Q --daemon

now do

/usr/bin/time screen -m -c /dev/null  -T $TERMINALNAME  sh -c 
"emacsclient.emacs-snapshot -n -t /tmp/emacsslow/AA${RANDOM}${RANDOM}BB ; 
emacsclient.emacs-snapshot --eval '(server-edit)'"

for different values of TERMINALNAME

Here is a sorted list of elapsed times for terminfo definitions
from my debian testing system (the elapsed times in this list are
the median of 11 rounds with each terminfo definiton):

0:00.05elapsed screen2
0:00.05elapsed screen3
0:00.05elapsed screen.Eterm
0:00.05elapsed screen.gnome
0:00.05elapsed screen.konsole
0:00.05elapsed screen.linux
0:00.05elapsed screen.mlterm
0:00.05elapsed screen.mrxvt
0:00.05elapsed screen.rxvt
0:00.05elapsed screen.teraterm
0:00.05elapsed screen.vte
0:00.05elapsed screen.xterm-new
0:00.05elapsed screen.xterm-r6

some of them are *much* slower:
0:02.06elapsed screen-16color
0:02.07elapsed screen-16color-bce
0:02.07elapsed screen-16color-s
0:02.07elapsed screen-bce.Eterm
0:02.07elapsed screen-bce.gnome
0:02.07elapsed screen-bce.konsole
0:02.07elapsed screen-bce.linux
0:02.07elapsed screen-bce.mlterm
0:02.07elapsed screen-bce.mrxvt
0:02.07elapsed screen-bce.rxvt
0:02.08elapsed screen-256color-s
0:02.09elapsed screen-256c-bce-s --> screen-256color-bce-s

Sadly I use the last one, which is a link to the actual terminfo
file since screen (1) does not accept TERM values with a length
of more then 20 characters.

I did the same timing tests with emacs24 as packaged for debian

0:00.02elapsed screen3
0:00.02elapsed screen.mrxvt
0:00.03elapsed screen-16color
0:00.03elapsed screen-16color-bce
0:00.03elapsed screen-16color-s
0:00.03elapsed screen2
0:00.03elapsed screen-bce.Eterm
0:00.03elapsed screen-bce.gnome
0:00.03elapsed screen-bce.konsole
0:00.03elapsed screen-bce.linux
0:00.03elapsed screen-bce.mlterm
0:00.03elapsed screen-bce.mrxvt
0:00.03elapsed screen-bce.rxvt
0:00.03elapsed screen.gnome
0:00.03elapsed screen.konsole
0:00.03elapsed screen.linux
0:00.03elapsed screen.mlterm
0:00.03elapsed screen.rxvt
0:00.03elapsed screen.teraterm
0:00.03elapsed screen.vte
0:00.03elapsed screen.xterm-new
0:00.04elapsed screen-256c-bce-s
0:00.04elapsed screen-256color-s
0:00.04elapsed screen.xterm-r6
0:00.10elapsed screen.Eterm

There is no such 2 secs delay.

I did a git bisect on the repo and this produced:

        Add support for bracketed paste mode; add infrastructure for
        managing terminal mode enabling and disabling automatically.

        * xt-mouse.el:
        (xterm-mouse-mode): Simplify.
        (xterm-mouse-tracking-disable-sequence): New constants.
        (turn-off-xterm-mouse-tracking-on-terminal): Use
        tty-mode-set-strings and tty-mode-reset-strings terminal
        parameters instead of random hooks.
        (turn-off-xterm-mouse-tracking): Delete.

        * term/xterm.el (xterm-extra-capabilities): Fix bitrotted comment.
        (xterm-paste-ending-sequence): New constant.
        (xterm-paste): New command used for bracketed paste support.

        (xterm-modify-other-keys-terminal-list): Delete obsolete variable.
        (terminal-init-xterm-bracketed-paste-mode): New function.
        (terminal-init-xterm): Call it.
        (terminal-init-xterm-modify-other-keys): Use tty-mode-set-strings
        and tty-mode-reset-strings instead of random hooks.
        (xterm-remove-modify-other-keys): Delete obsolete functions.

        * term/screen.el: Rewrite to just use the xterm code.  Add
        copyright notice.  Mention tmux.

I have no idea if or how this is related to the problem at hand,
but screen.el was changed, therefore I hope this info helps.

I wished, emacsclient would open files be fast again.

I would be happy to answer questions or do some testing
if someone provides me with instruction.

Thanks for your attention, Gregor
