I don't recall any hangs, but I do recall some tests
taking an extremely long time (> 30 minutes), which might
create the impression of a hang - this was similar on
RedHat 7.1 and Mandrake 8.0, as I recall. My old test
journals unfortunately got trashed, but I'm pretty sure
the exec* family were involved, and I think something
in the signal family.
I'll add that this wasn't something that surprised me,
as I've seen this sort of behavior on various UNIX
systems in past runs. Perhaps Andrew and cohorts have
comments - I may be mixing memories.
