This problem and its possible workaround are described in
etc/PROBLEMS; search for "Timed out waiting for property-notify
event".

1. Start Emacs (under X):
    $ emacs -Q
2. Type M-x 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 RET C-SPC M-<

Expected behavior: The region encompasses the entire scratch buffer,
including the million new blank lines, and the region is highlighted.

Actual behavior: Emacs hangs for a few moments and then reports "Timed
out waiting for property-notify event".  Subsequently, the region is
correct and correctly highlighted.  (The entire actual behavior,
however, is correct when select-active-regions is nil.)

Quite possibly a bug in X, not Emacs, but I can reliably reproduce the
problem ever since upgrading to Ubuntu 17.04, so if there are steps I
can take to help debug, please let me know.

Possibly already discussed at
http://emacs.1067599.n8.nabble.com/bug-13486-24-2-92-large-X-selections-timed-out-waiting-for-property-notify-event-td275798.html.
