Unhappy SecureCRT: emacs hangs when pasting text

I login a linux server from windows using SecureCRT multiple windows, and open Emacs pop-up windows. When I paste text into Emacs, Emcas always hangs. I have been doing this for many year and never had this problem before. Since I got a new laptop and installed new SecureCRT a month ago, my Emacs hangs every time when I paste text, no matter whether I use Ctrl-y or paste from the menu. I am using SecureCRT 6.7.3, Emacs 23.1.1 and Xming

Hello rongchenBioinfo,

Could you describe what new encompasses in your statement below?

Since I got a new laptop and installed new SecureCRT a month ago, my Emacs hangs every time when I paste text ...
On the old setup that did not hang when pasting text, what version of SecureCRT was running?

Was the Emacs and Xming versions the same?

Could you provide Trace Options output per the instructions below?

It's often useful to see "trace options" output which provides debugging information that may help us better understand the problem that you're experiencing.

To enable trace options output:
  • First, open SecureCRT's main "File" pull-down menu and select "Trace Options". If you open the "File" pull down menu again you should see a checkmark next to "Trace Options", indicating that troubleshooting output is now enabled.
  • Next, connect to the remote machine. With trace options enabled, you will notice debugging information displayed in the terminal window that isn't normally there by default when SecureCRT is attempting to establish a connection, and at certain times throughout the lifetime of the connection.
  • Once the problem occurs, please right-click inside the terminal window and choose "Select All", then right-click again and choose "Copy" to transfer the information to the clipboard.
  • Finally, open a text editor, paste the information from the clipboard into the editor program, and save it as a text file.
Since trace options can contain sensitive information, feel free to send it as an attachment via e-mail to support@vandyke.com. Please reference "Attn Brenda - Forum Thread #10313" in the subject line.
