Thank you for your report.

Can you tell where to get that picture, in order to reproduce the

This is an optimized build.  Too many parameters are optimized out,
and even the backtrace itself is not reliable in optimized builds.

Could you perhaps rebuild Emacs with "-O0 -ggdb -g3", and then show
the backtrace from the same hang?  Also, if you single-step Emacs from
this point, or use `finish', does it loop in endlessly, or does it
remain stuck in append_glyph?  See the section "If the symptom of the
bug is that Emacs fails to respond" in etc/DEBUG for more details
about this.

Finally, please run GDB from the Emacs's src/ directory?  There's a
.gdbinit file there which will show a Lisp backtrace as well.

Yes, please do that as well.

Wow, that's a lot of shadowing!  Is it intentional?
