If you e.g. open a crash report in styleedit which is big enough to need more than one side (>=2). Then you choose to print it into PDF. Then you will see a progress dialog which going to 100% and then this dialog changes to the look which you can see in the attached PNG and uses 100% CPU and you have to hard reset the computer. (You can not click on Tracker or Deskbar anymore) This is a gcc4 build from hrev45227.

Getting this on hrev47020 (gcc2 hybrid or whatever the default is nowadays). Here's an attached report printing a 2-page plain text (no styling) made from scratch in StyledEdit. Interestingly, it also happens if you tell it to just print pages 1-1. For me it didn't need a hard reset--after a few minutes I got a debug report (attached) and killed the task, and all was OK again.

Also, the screen does look just like jahaiku's screenshot, and I guess whatever loop it gets into happens after "the important stuff" is done, because it does actually output a PDF file with all of the text present.

This also happens printing from Sum-It.
