Re: buffer has no process problem

Hi. This is not an emacspeak problem. It's partially due to the nature
of emacs itself. What happens is that each buffer is a section of
memory in which a "process or program is running. If you are not
careful, it is possible to kill the program or "process" which is
running in that segment. If you do this, you will jam up your system
because you will be trying to run in a blank segment of RAM. The
processor will just be looking around in there and there'll be no
"food for thought" for it and it won't know what to do. For this
reason, your system will do this. It is best not to run such
terminal-based applications as lynx or pine or whatever other
applications you might be running. Lynx can be replaced with w3 and
pine can be replaced with the rmail program that comes stock with each
distribution of emacs. 

I hope this info can help you out. It is true that the buffer has no
process. Getting out of it is really more complex than it's worth,
though, be careful with those resets, don't trash your file
system. Believe me, it can happen. 

Hope this helps.
