It works fine for me in XEmacs 21.4 (patch 17) (i386-debian-linux, 
Mule).  If you could answer a few questions, it might help me track down 
the problem:

- What version of xemacs are you running?
- What version of doctest-mode are you running (0.4 or 0.5)?
- Are you using doctest-mode by itself, or in combination with another
   mode (via mmm-mode)?
- Does pressing control-g (possibly repeatedly) cause it to become
- Does it always freeze when you hit C-c C-c?  Or does it depend on the
   contents of the buffer?  Does it freeze if you run it in an empty

You could try changing the value of doctest-python-command, to see if 
that helps -- "M-x customize-variable doctest-python-command".  Set it 
to the full path to a Python interpreter.
