Are you sure that the program is really stuck in the gc module?
The loop you mention has to go through all objects of the process.  It's possible that it allocated many objects, that one garbage collection takes a few seconds, and even that most of the time is spent inside the garbage collector.
But can you check whether this function terminates?  For example, you could put a breakpoint in the collect() function.
