There was a bug in the Windows version of Emacs that caused lockups.
It was recently solved, see

If you can build the latest emacs-24 branch, you might see the problem
gone.  Or wait until the next snapshot is uploaded.

Thanks for the offer, but there are no PDB files.  Precompiled
binaries are produced using the MinGW port of GCC, so the debug info
is in the DWARF-2 format readable by GDB, the GNU debugger.  That
debug info is part of emacs.exe.  If you have GDB or can install it
from the MinGW site, you can attach it to Emacs when it freezes and
produce a backtrace.
