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

    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
