Thanks for that bug report. Herbert J. Skuhra also
privately reported the same bug, and was gracious enough to
give me a login on a FreeBSD host where I could reproduce
your test case and debug the problem.
I found two related bugs. First, Emacs's 'configure' script
incorrectly assumed that pthread_sigmask wasn't working on
FreeBSD; this is fixed in Emacs trunk bzr 109107.
Second, the gnulib fallback code for pthread_sigmask
incorrectly assumed that FreeBSD's pthread_sigmask (1729,
NULL, NULL) returns a nonzero error number, which it does
not -- it returns 0. This is arguably a POSIX-compliance
bug in FreeBSD, but a bug like this is something that should
not make Emacs hang. This is fixed by Emacs trunk bzr
I'm marking the bug as done; please feel free to reopen it if
this fix does not work for you.
