Okay, I think this is likely to be correct, and also why the backtraces
are so useless. Emacs is making extensive use of CPU (running at 100%)
but only when I am typing. When I stop (which I obviously have to do to
check gdb, then the CPU drops again.

I've tried removing all post/pre command hooks with no success so far.
