This part is most likely this:
The initial thread is always put in an eternal select, so this is normal

Don't know what could be causing the emulator to hang. If you think/suspect
that it is the emulator that hangs, then attach to the pid with gdb and do
a "threads apply all bt full" and check if any threads sit in something
that is not expected. I doubt that is something in the emulator though.
