Hello Colleagues,

seems that i have the ancient emacs problem :

sometimes, out of the sudden, emacs is telling me that the "minibuffer
is already active" and no further action is possible. Of course i have
searched already the internet, and, of course i have found the answer
that i have to kill the minibuffer with "^]", but, of course, this
command is not working.

Does anyone knows the answer, i have to exit emacs which looks very
stupid to other colleagues, which are using Microsoft Word and so on.

ESC ESC ESC

should pretty much always help.

Though in some circumstances you have to use

  META ESC ESC

instead. (If you are using Viper for example.)
