Does it hang or is is stuck in a loop? Check whether emacs is is
accumulating CPU time with ps.

If it's in a loop and C-g works to get it out, you can set
debug-on-quit, interrupt it and ponder the backtrace. Doing it a couple
of times might indicate where the problem is.

If not, then the only thing I can think of is attaching strace to the
emacs process, and figuring out what it is doing.

In either case, easier said than done, but desperate times call for
desperate measures.
