This is how I have run the shorter Emacs session until it got blocked:

MTRACE_CTL_VERBOSE=1 MTRACE_CTL_FILE=/home/data1/protected/tmp/mtraceEMACS.mtr 
 emacs >> $DEBUG 2>&1

And here is mtrace:


I cannot run Emacs that way as something happens and Emacs get
blocked. Problem arrives with M-s M-w to search for anything on
Internet with eww. Anything blocks. And I get message:

error in process filter: Quit

after that C-g does not work, I cannot kill buffer, I cannot save the
current work or other buffers, I cannot switch from buffer to buffer
neither open any menu.

Debugging requires longer run sessions and actual work in Emacs.

This happens all the time when I run Emacs like the above example

Unless there is safer way for debugging the above one is not
functional as it blocks everything and I do use incidentally or
accidentally eww in the work.

I hope that something will be visible from that mtrace.
