Sorry. I compounded the obscurity by starting to call balance.bal

The situation seems to indicate a problem in emacs bookmarks. The
balance.bal is an emacs bookkeeping program. ~/.balance.bal has
-rw-r--r-- permission that is simply a log of a bank account. It is
manipulated by a set of commands to perform operations on it. So
the .balance.bal file is simple and not a likely source of trouble.

The problem is not with bookmarks, for if I try to open .balance.bal
simply like any their file in emacs, I get the same problem. If it
has not been opened for while the opening hangs with the spinning
spiral. I have to stop the open process with Ctl-g and then then I
can open it without a problem.

I note wo things. One is that there's an array of .balance* files such
as .balance.bal.bak that open right up. In emacss or nano. It is
emacs that can't open .balance.bal on first try/

Also there is a symlink for .balance.bal:

.#balance.bal -> haines@engels.3050:1627212275

'I'm delete it.
