Yes, but if you are thinking about some thread in that
toolkit/windowing library getting stuck while others continue working,
you can try starting Emacs in X synchronous mode (etc/DEBUG has the
details), then Emacs will wait for each X call to return, and X will
not return until the request completes.  If you see the same problem
in that case, i.e. some frame(s) become not responsive while others
don't, it is almost certainly not an Emacs problem.
