Sebastian, Nicolas,

6.3.3 is currently hung on a particular message for 10+ minutes.  It was copying messages down from remote imap to local imap.

I tried Ctrl+C , then Ctrl+Break .  The script is still hanging.  

You mentioned something about a futex possibly causing a hang.  

This is a production server running on debian lenny.

Any suggestion how to break the script?

And why is it hanging?  

How to troubleshoot this hang?
