If you run it not under GDB, then attaching GDB to it ("gdb -p PID",
where PID is the process ID of the running Emacs) should interrupt
whatever it is doing and let you examine the call-stack backtrace.
Are you saying that this is not working?

Anyway, can it be that you have C source files loaded in that Emacs,
and you have JIT stealth font-lock enabled?  There are some problems
in C mode in that area at the moment (I had similar lockups myself),
so perhaps this is what you are hitting.

I'm sorry for your trouble.  I can only say that no one else reported
anything similar for this version.  You can always go back to Emacs 23
if you find this unbearable.
