Does 'pkill -SIGUSR2 emacs' help? Otherwise running under gdb and
hitting C-z at the gdb terminal should give some more info.
(elisp) Error Debugging
-- User Option: debug-on-event
If you set ‘debug-on-event’ to a special event (*note Special
Events::), Emacs will try to enter the debugger as soon as it
receives this event, bypassing ‘special-event-map’. At present,
the only supported values correspond to the signals ‘SIGUSR1’ and
‘SIGUSR2’ (this is the default). This can be helpful when
‘inhibit-quit’ is set and Emacs is not otherwise responding.
