No, I guess it's not.

I think I can reproduce it "reliably":

1. Open an Org file
2. Go to a task headline
3. Clock into it (C-c C-x C-i)
4. Press down arrown to go to next line
5. Press TAB to open LOGBOOK drawer
6. Press C-c C-n to go the the next task (as drawer is huge)
7. Press up arrow to go to the line before the last clock line
8. Press left arrow to go to the end of the last clock line

I'm not sure whether variations of this do work or not... or whether the
contents of my file does have impact on the recipe.

Now, as asked...

  │ ** If the symptom of the bug is that Emacs fails to respond
  │ Don't assume Emacs is `hung'--it may instead be in an infinite loop.
  │ To find out which, make the problem happen under GDB and stop Emacs
  │ once it is not responding.  (If Emacs is using X Windows directly, you
  │ can stop Emacs by typing C-z at the GDB job.)  Then try stepping with
  │ `step'.  If Emacs is hung, the `step' command won't return.  If it is
  │ looping, `step' will return. [...]

...what I did is launch Emacs from GDB in a Cygwin shell:

I reproduced the problem.

Then, I tried (multiple times) to C-z in the GDB session, but nothing
happens: Emacs stays block and I don't get any GDB prompt.

Am I missing something?
