I agree and would have provided one if I could.  However, I have no idea
what is causing this, nor how to write a test case for it.

As I said, it's a cron job running a bash script - nothing fancy.  The
hang does not happen on every invokation of the script, but it does
occur frequently.  Where in the script it gets stuck seems to be
random: wget, mkdir, mv, date, diff, etc..

As I said, these sort of problems started after the 2006-03-09 snapshot.
 I double checked, and the problem does occur with the 2006-03-13
