In a reproduction of this, at the start of undo-tree-copy-list,
undo-list is:

  (nil (undo-tree-id3 . -2))

Then in this while loop:

  (while (null copy)
    (setq copy
          (undo-tree-restore-GC-elts-from-pool (pop undo-list))))

undo-tree-restore-GC-elts-from-pool returns nil for both elements, so
the while loop never ends. Perhaps you want instead (ignore-whitespace
