gdb attached correctly and used C-c on the gdb console to interrupt it
(or it was interrupted automatically when gdb attached to it, I can not
remember for sure), then I obtained the backtrace posted on this thread
and used `finish' to locate the frame that infloops. Obviously, at that
point Emacs was inflooping again and C-c was ignored. Then I sent a
SIGSTOP signal to emacs, which interrupted the process and was able to
obtain the contents of *Messages* from gdb.

After executing `c', gdb showed the signal handler. Same when repeated.

Sorry, the Emacs session is gone now.

Next time I'll try to not use C-g and attach gdb right away.
