Well, dump wasn't hanging, rather it was hanging the rest of the system.
In any case, I have upgraded to a recent -stable and am no longer able
to reproduce the problem.

I have built myself a looping 'ps -axl' which should let me gather more
information if it does re-appear.  (In the process, I've found that ps
leaks memory, though that's not a problem until you wrap it in a loop).

Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
