Run 'cmdebug <client>' while hanging; it will tell you what locks are
being held and waited on. If you could see if the same thing happens
with and 1.5.77 clients, it would also help.

Of course, the problem may not be on the client side: the fileserver may
just not be talking to you. Do you know the versions of the fileservers
