Well it seems that it didn't hang at all. What happens is that the buffer
which contains the org file doesn't seem to accept any keyboard input
anymore. If I use the mouse to switch to another buffer, there the keyboard
input works as it should. Then if I switch back to the problematic file, it
works as well, for a while. Also, I've noticed that the problem seems to be
happening when I try to expand a heading.

For now I can do this mouse switching of buffers but I'd really like to
know what happens and how can it be fixed.
