Probably not automatically.  ESC ESC ESC also doesn't help ? (it always
did for me)

Under Gnu/Linux, sending SIGUSR2 to the Emacs process should force Emacs
into the debugger.  This sets debug-on-quit to t, you should reset it to
nil afterwards.  This works most of the time even if Emacs is completely

Do you have a reproducible recipe, btw?
