Yep, C-g many times but no help.

A few more bits of info:

- I think the freeze is entirely temporary, however the time frozen *seems* to 
increase linearly depending on the number of offending lines, so a buffer with 
only one or two extending lines might recover in a second or two, but a buffer 
with many offending lines will appear permanently frozen.

- Move attempted point motion on offending lines appears to prolong the freeze.

- The freeze will be very minimal (a second or two) if point skips over the 
wrap-prefix text entirely, e.g. apply wrap-prefix to lines in the middle of 
buffer, then M-> to eobp.

- No freeze occurs if point is at eobp and moves back to bobp with M-< in the 
same circumstances as above.

- The freeze will occur if the wrapped text is scrolled into view from below, 
e.g. same circumstances as above, move point to eobp then mouse wheel up.

- When point moves to an affected position and things become frozen, the line 
number in the mode line will display as "??"
