Have you tried ctrl-c within gdb? It might work...
gdb can "attach" to remote processes, though I'm not sure if this
works in windows...

Another option that I thought about but never actually attempted was
to "wait until it locks, then attach very sleepy to it for about 1s"
to see if VS will give you the backtraces...
