I've talked to Owen Taylor about it.  The eMusic author traced the problem
down to one line of code in GTK where it was freezing. I'm appending 
his message below. Neither him nor I have heard anything about it since.

Basically, the problem happens when XInitThreads() is called before
gtk_init().  For more details, ask the author ( :)

Okay, I compiled my copy of gtk with --with-xinput=xfree to see where it was
freezing..  so with XInitThreads() called before the gtk_init(), it seems to be
locking in gdk_input_common_init(), gdkinputcommon.h:444 ::
        devices = XListInputDevices(display, &num_devices);

I don't know anything about the xinput extension, so I don't think I'll be able
to debug any further..
