My hangs look like what Gerd's seeing, but I don't notice any errors

For me they always seem to be in mallopt called from malloc called from
the regex code, called from within emacs' font-handling code; I've
appended an example backtrace.

Heh, it seems to be happening more and more often for me, so I usually
don't have long to wait.  :-(

I'll grovel at this a bit more, but I'm not sure there's much I can
find out at this stage.  I'll try re-compiling using the debugging
options Gerd used...
