Albert, could you create a really small test case for this problem
and post it to the list? If you can get it down to one file in
a directory that would be best. Did SN freeze and never come back
or did it start working again after some amount of time? We
need a test case to be able to figure out if SN is getting
stuck or if it is that parser that is getting stuck.
