When running emacs, the system freezes without even mouse responding.
Once I drop to a new  console and kill emacs, things return to normal.

pcbsd-7344% emacs

(emacs:7111): GLib-WARNING **: In call to g_spawn_sync(), exit status
of a child process was requested but SIGCHLD action was set to SIG_IGN
and ECHILD was received by waitpid(), so exit status can't be
returned. This is a bug in the program calling g_spawn_sync(); either
don't request the exit status, or don't set the SIGCHLD action.

warm regards
