I have had this problem too before with hanging scripts. After looking
at the offending scripts, I determined that they all had for-loops, and
they were hanging while executing them.  I then reformatted the
for-loops from:
for file in ${glob}; do

for file in ${glob}

and they worked. Give it a try, but of course, since I can't claim to
understand the cause of this issue, YMMV.
