1) Emacs -Q
2) M-x shell
3) type some command, and use some filename completions on the way
(using TAB).
4) Type a semicolon (;)

Now Emacs hangs, the ; does not appear, and it doesn't react to a C-g typed.
It uses 100% CPU and memory grows beyond bounds, eventually just making
my whole computer unresponsive.

Typing a whole series of C-g's might stop the loop (with the ; appearing
then) or it might crash Emacs:
Fatal error 11: Segmentation fault
Abort trap: 6

This report is typed in a session where the sequence of C-g's did stop
the loop.
The C-g caused this message:
Error in post-command-hook (completion-in-region--postch): (quit)
Although the option Enter debugger on Quit/C-g was set, no backtrace was

Thanks, pushed to the release branch.

It is sufficient to post here, but:

 . please in the future provide a ChangeLog-style commit log message
   (see CONTRIBUTE for more about this);
 . it looks like the disclaimer of your employer has expired several
   years ago, so if you want to continue contributing to Emacs, I
   suggest to start/renew your legal paperwork.
