aptitude safe-upgrade hanging

    Any ideas why aptitude is hanging at "Preconfiguring Packages..." on a
safe-upgrade?  This is in testing.

265 packages upgraded, 10 newly installed, 4 to remove and 12 not upgraded.
Need to get 11.7MB/174MB of archives. After unpacking 44.4MB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]

Preconfiguring packages ...

    Oddly enough if I explicitly install a package it works fine.  I figured
it was a possible error in aptitude and upgraded it to the latest version in
testing.  Google has turned up nothing nor does there seem to be any relevant
bugs on bugs.debian.org.
