I don't know, but I could imagine it being unavoidable in some cases
(like the perennial hanging NFS mount scenario, although that's not
the same thing I guess). We should keep the bug-list cc'd since
someone there may have an answer...
The doc of accept-process-output does say that it does not return
until there is some output. It doesn't mention quitting being
inhibited though. By experiment, it is not:
(setq proc (start-process "sleep" nil "sleep" "60"))
(accept-process-output proc) ; C-g works fine
So I guess you may need to figure out exactly what the relevant
process is and what it is doing.
