First thing to try is to reproduce this in a session started with
"emacs -q".

Another useful piece of information is where exactly does Emacs hang.
To find that out, set the variable debug-on-quit to t, and then press
C-g when Emacs hangs.  You should see a Lisp-level backtrace pop in
a buffer, which tells where was Emacs stuck.  If that doesn't give any
clues, post the backtrace here.
