That's the usual case with me too. However I don't have any distribution
set in the configuration file... instead sbuild is smart enought to figure
it out from debian/changelog (or maybe from the .changes built out of the
current directory).

So when I have "UNRELEASED" as target distribution and call "sbuild", I
get this hang. The simple solutions is to indicate the desired
distribution: sbuild -d unstable
