Thanks! I just applied the patch to the 26.1 release source tree (it
applied cleanly) and rebuilt Emacs. This build still hangs, but
there's one difference: it no longer prints "Fatal error 11:
Segmentation fault" immediately after forking. When I sigint the Emacs
process after the hang, it still prints the NSAutoreleasePool error
message, and it still requires a sigkill to avoid eating CPU.

Is there anything else I should try to help track this down before
going down the road of running 'git bisect'?
