Hmm, I'm not sure I understand what you're saying.  My impression is
that Emacs is getting stuck on wait_reading_process_output's select()
call, which doesn't exit to do the necessary X event processing until
some user input is available.  If that's the case, then the problem is
calling select() with a long timeout.
