Any chance you could recollect why did you type C-g while at that?
Not really. I had invoked M-x recompile, and didn't immediately see
results in the compilation-mode buffer. That's not a compelling reason
to type C-g so I suppose I had done something else too.
The file I was editing/compiling wasn't saved (I recovered it from a
stale autosave later). I don't remember whether I saw the "Save file
%s? (...)" question, nor whether I had answered it if so. (I mention
this in case it's a useful clue. Probably not.)

I've found one, possibly two more places where we could QUIT while
holding a critical section. I cannot know if they were part of your
hang, but I went ahead and fixed them on the emacs-26 branch. Let's
see if they stop these hangs from happening.
Great, thanks. Let's see.
