Which part of this backtrace is always present and which part varies?
My guess would be that you have a somewhat-large text in your (top of)
kill-ring and that you're running one of those bogus clipboard programs
(like klipper) and that for some reason this program repetitively asks Emacs
for the current content of the (top of) kill-ring.
