bug#25156: 26.0.50; `describe-text-properties' hangs with 100% cpu usage

Subject: bug#25156: 26.0.50; `describe-text-properties' hangs with 100% cpu usage when property is a char-table

BTW, I also found that `describe-variable' has the same problem.

(describe-variable 'lisp-mode-syntax-table)

I have not looked into this yet, it could be the same bug.

A simplest test case is like:

(describe-property-list (list 'syntax-table lisp-mode-syntax-table))

evaluating this Elisp _expression_ will hang with 100% CPU usage.

Thanks.  Could you perhaps prepare a small test case for this problem?
It would help understanding the underlying problem, and possibly also
serve as a beginning of a test for our test suite.
