I see that on occasion, but haven't pinned down reliable conditions
for reproducing the symptom.  I'm using tcsh as shell (I'm not
claiming a correlation necessarily).  What if you hit enter in the
hung window?  That usually kicks things into gear causing the process
/ window to go away here.

(I miss 'wchan' in ps output to give a clue what the process is
doing / waiting on.)

I've had exactly the same problem for some time now.
For weeks? Months? Since which version?
