portmaster 3.13.13 real endless loop "Waiting on fetch & checksum..."

I have this problem on a specific 8.3-RELEASE since several weeks.

portmaster hangs in endeless loop for "Waiting on fetch & checksum..." 
for all ports.

If the distfile does not exist, portmaster fetches it, but stays in this 
endless loop.

If distfile is already fetched, portmaster will go immediately in 
endless loop.

rm'ing the /tmp/*fetchlog* file by hand will continue portmaster to 
build and install the port.

I have no idea where to go!

gatekeeper# portmaster -i unrar-3.93,5

===>>> Currently installed version: unrar-3.93,5
===>>> Port directory: /usr/ports/archivers/unrar

===>>> Gathering distinfo list for installed ports

===>>> Launching 'make checksum' for archivers/unrar in background
===>>> Gathering dependency list for archivers/unrar from ports
===>>> No dependencies for archivers/unrar


===>>> Starting build for archivers/unrar <<<===

===>>> All dependencies are up to date

===>  Cleaning for unrar-4.20,5
===>>> Waiting on fetch & checksum for archivers/unrar <<<===

===>>> Waiting on fetch & checksum for archivers/unrar <<<===

ps -ax shows this:

27005   0  S+     0:00.02 /bin/sh /usr/local/sbin/portmaster -i unrar-3.93,5
27331   0  S+     0:00.00 sleep 2

ports tree is freshly extracted with portsnap. make install in ports dir 
will work for all ports.
