Still, I can't reproduce the problem.  I'm, too, running RTM versions
from MSDN, x86 and x64 Standard Edition.  Just for kicks, I'll install
an Enterprise x64 in the next couple of days and try again. 

Can somebody else confirm or deny such a problem on 2008?

Other than that, you're the one who could debug any problems.  I can't
tell what you should look for.  Except for "it hangs without taking
CPU", we have no other details.
