I am currently using magit to work on remote git repositories. When I run any commands, Emacs seems to "hang". When I press ctrl+g, I am taken to the buffer I wanted. This is most prevalent when I am running magit status.

Sometimes if I press ctrl+g too quickly it will show me a partially loaded status buffer. Addionally, when I try and commit, the message buffer pops up, and after I press C-c C-c to commit my change, it will hang. Several presses of C-g lead to a message "Process Sentinel Quit", and then I have to reopen magit status (again pressing C-g to get it to show up). My commit does go through though.

I don't know if this is an issue with Magit or Tramp -- any insight into this matter will be appreciated. I am also happy to provide additional information, I am just not sure what exactly to provide.

Emacs version: GNU Emacs 25.3.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin13.4.0, NS appkit-1265.21 Version 10.9.5 (Build 13F1911)) of 2017-09-12

Magit: Magit 20190605.1417, Git 2.14.3 (Apple Git-98), Emacs 25.3.1, darwin


Thanks in advance!

  • Hard to say whether this is Tramp. The usual procedure is to set tramp-verbose to 6, rerun the test, and show the Tramp debug buffer. Since it isn't possible to do it via sx, I recommend a Tramp bug report. – Michael Albinus Jun 6 at 6:32
