I think I see what's happening: it's a deadlock.  When you type C-g,
the input thread (which receives all keyboard input from Windows),
sets the quit-flag, then attempts to send the C-g character to the
main thread.  To send the message, it tries to enter critical section,
and waits for it.  Meanwhile, the main thread tries to tell the input
thread to draw the scroll bar, and calls SendMessage for that.
SendMessage waits for the input thread to receive the message, but the
input thread is stuck waiting for the main thread to exit the critical
section.
