The "backtrace" command accepts an argument, the number of frames to
show; so you could use "backtrace 10" to show just the innermost 10
frames, and thus make the backtrace be faster.

This thread, the main thread, is waiting for the global lock to become
free.

This thread is restoring point as part as returning from
save-excursion.  But I still am not sure whether this is our villain.
Does buffer position 146 sound correct wrt what you see in *scratch*,
i.e. is it the position where point jumps?  Also, please add to the
breakpoint commands the command to display the current buffer:

   pp current_buffer->name_

Thanks.
