A thread dump might be useful in these circumstances.
$ ps -ef |grep [q]uamacs
will get you the process id (second field.)
$ kill -QUIT <pid> >dumpfile 2>&1
(I don't know whether the dump goes to STDOUT or STDERR, hence the redirect of STDERR.)

The “Emacs” menu appears, but no visible window and no response. If you switch to another app, you can’t switch back via Cmd-Tab or by clicking its icon in the dock. The only thing you can do is to force-kill it.
