I recently encountered an (infloop) bug in org-element, and the tip to
get a useful backtrace from the apparently frozen emacs is:

[0. when on GNU/Linux, call 'top' to see if emacs uses 100pc CPU]
1. emacs -Q
2. M-x load-library org-element.el
3. do what you do to make emacs freeze
4. call on the cmd-line

| kill -s usr2 4352
(get the PID with 'ps -e | grep emacs')

or, equivalently (?)

| pkill --signal usr2 emacs

5. study/copy/paste/send *Backtrace* buffer from (not frozen anymore)
