``Freezes'' and ``goes into an infinite loop'' are two different
things.  Please tell which one is it, and how did you verify that it's
not the other.

Does C-g still produce a backtrace you reported a few months ago,
similar to this:

?  If you see a different backtrace, please post it.

Does it happen with any TeX file, or just with this specific one.

Yes, it is relevant: there are known problems with running async
subprocesses when the Cygwin port of Bash is involved; see
etc/PROBLEMS for more details.

Could you try a different shell?

Also, what port of TeX do you use?  Is it also a Cygwin port?  If so,
I'd suggest a native Windows port, like fpTeX.
