Previously, it was not in lazy-lock mode.
Enabling lazy-lock mode has no effect on the issue.
As soon as it attempts to fontify any part of the buffer, the status bar is

Do C-h m on any buffer that is fontified. You would see a list of all major
and minor modes that are active in that buffer.

You can rule out lazy-lock by testing with just the following in your
(add-hook 'font-lock-mode-hook 'turn-on-lazy-lock)
;; lazy-lock doesn't have a variable for its modeline name, so we have
;; to do a bit of surgery.
(and (assoc 'lazy-lock-mode minor-mode-alist)
(setcdr (cdr (cadr (assoc 'lazy-lock-mode minor-mode-alist))) ""))
and the following in your .xemacs/custom.el
'(lazy-lock-mode 1 nil (lazy-lock)))
and see if XEmacs gets into an infinite loop ? And you need to run XEmacs
under X and not with -nw.
