[issue2088] bash stalling

New submission from Matthias Rampke <matthias.rampke at googlemail.com>:

when re-building packages, the build process sometimes just … stops. There is no error or 
anything, there's just nothing happening any more.

Examples of this are devel/scmgit-docs and x11/gtk2. The exact spot when this happens varies, 
but I noticed that it's always (as far as I can tell) a bash process that stalls.

scmgit-docs repeatedly calls xmlto, which is a bash script. gtk2 uses bash for the configure 
scripts (which more often than not stall at writing config.status or similar).

I have tried recompiling bash and installing the binary bash via pkg_radd; none helped.

I'm using a very recent (post-vm_object work) kernel, uname -a is:
DragonFly zz.2pktfkt.net 2.11-DEVELOPMENT DragonFly v2.11.0.358.ga17ae-DEVELOPMENT #4: Sun Jun 
12 17:15:25 CEST 2011 matthias at zz.2pktfkt.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/X86_64_GENERIC  x86_64

On my i386 UP laptop it seems to work fine (scmgit-docs build went through on first try).
