The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

emacs kill limited to 64K across frames (copy-region-as-kill / yank)

I just realized that cutting and pasting more than 64K bytes does not work in emacs 24.1.1

... if I cut in one frame and paste (yank) in a different frame

It is truncated at 64K.

It works if I cut and paste in the same frame.


I have encountered this bug when cutting and pasting from emacs to X.  Not sure if it is related here.
