I believe it's the latter, though I admit at this point I haven't actually looked at the digging code in a long time. I guess it may be possible to get yourself entirely stuck.

It should never be better to dig with your bare hands than to dig with a weapon, since weapon weight figures into the digging formula and hands have either zero weight or a very small weight.
