help! Keep getting emacs locked up / not responding to c-g / having to kill process

This is related to my previous post about clearing the kill ring. I have a
frequent case, when running shell buffers, where selecting a lot of the buffer
(could be thousands of lines) seems to lock up emacs. Most of the time, one or
more c-g hits will stop what it was doing and give me back control. However,
lately (including 15 minutes ago) I've been hitting this and c-g does nothing
and ps shows emacs at around 95% cpu. As this is a shared server, that doesn't
make me popular with other users!
I end up having to kill the process. This really sucks since I had about a
dozen shell buffers logged into multiple servers and running long jobs that
were all killed when I killed emacs.
Any suggestions on stopping this from happening in the first place and/or
something stronger than c-g but short of killing emacs?
FYI, this is 24.3.something on REH 5.something.
