digitalmars.D.learn - rdmd hung?

I use emacs and have command that runs rdmd. Very rarely, as a guess maybe one in 100 calls to build, rdmd does not make any progress and I have to kill it. So, a ps -efww shows something like below and over 15 minutes have passed (normally max time to build and run is a couple of seconds) UID PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD 1000 4065 4063 0 10:44 pts/12 00:00:00 rdmd -debug -g -w -property foo.d No progress is being made. So, my questions: - is this a potential deadlock in rdmd? I believe it attempts to parallelize the work. - has anyone experienced this? - on linux is there a way, once in this state to provide any information that would be helpful. strace during on a complete run could help - but it is too late for that. Thanks Dan
