Can you use C-g to wake Emacs up?  Normally, C-g works.

If C-g wakes Emacs up, then please do C-u 1 M-x toggle-debug-on-quit
RET, then start Gnus, then wake Emacs up with C-g.  You should get a
backtrace which shows you what Emacs was doing when you hit C-g.  Now
try to hit `c', then wait a few minutes, then hit C-g again.  Compare
the new backtrace.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  Can you spot any pattern?

Another approach to finding out what's wrong is to run Emacs like
this:

    strace emacs

Then you can see what Emacs is doing in the xterm where you typed the
above command.  Please see what happens when you start Gnus.  (Emacs
will run a bit slower with this command.  But it's for debugging
only.)
