Did you run this as administrative user or as normal, non-privileged
user?  I fixed a problem in current CVS which might be the actual cause
of this hang, and which has nothing to do with cgf's pipe changes.  I
found this while looking for an entirely unrelated problem, when trying
to login as non-privileged user resulted in a hang the same way you
describe it above.

My patch solved the hang for me, but it might be something different in
your case.  Please test with the next snapshot again.
