No, it's the semi-normal problem of the server/sws not stopping.
It happens very often on Tru64 and occasionally on AIX, on the Tru64
build machine I run a kill-script to avoid it (it didn't always avoid
it so I improved the script only yesterday). On AIX it's been rarely
enough that I kill manually when I notice. In this case it had been
hanging since Feb 2 - I hadn't had time to log in and check.
Killed now.

That's exactly it.
