Once again, perhaps I misunderstand the nature of the problem, but
doesn't it happen only when the Python interpreter is busy doing
something when the eldoc function is invoked?  If so, then the next
time eldoc is invoked, the Python interpreter might not be busy, and
the feature will work without hanging, right?  Or am I missing
something?

Well, we turn off the automatic display of the documentation in the
echo area, right?

Thanks.
