At least I have to see 'me too' for this, if by 'emacs hangs' you mean
the slime->lisp connection gets stuck in "eval state" (as announced in
the modeline). Emacs itself is not unresponsive, but everything
involving slime obviously hang.
I tried to locate the cause
and could improve things a bit by removing the pre-gc-hook and
post-gc-hook in swank-cmucl.lisp. Now it takes longer till hang occurs.

Any debugging leads greatly appreciated.
