If Emacs is hanging, a static backtrace is unlikely to be much use.  You need
to follow the instructions in DEBUG:

  If Emacs is in an infinite loop, try to determine where the loop
  starts and ends.  The easiest way to do this is to use the GDB command
  `finish'.  Each time you use it, Emacs resumes execution until it
  exits one stack frame.  Keep typing `finish' until it doesn't
  return--that means the infinite loop is in the stack frame which you
  just tried to finish.

  Stop Emacs again, and use `finish' repeatedly again until you get back
  to that frame.  Then use `next' to step through that frame.  By
  stepping, you will see where the loop starts and ends.  Also, examine
  the data being used in the loop and try to determine why the loop does
  not exit when it should.

Also when a C backtrace is useful, it usually helps to include lisp backtrace.
This is output automatically with `bt' if you run Emacs under GDB from the src
directory otherwise you need to source .gdbinit (in the src directory) first.
