I don't think the answer to that is clear from the reports sent to the
mailing list.  There are also two versions of hang fixes at

Please try them out and see if they fix the problem with -v.

You can also try the 2.4.7pre1 snapshot or the current CVS.  Somebody else
asked recently how to get those so I will give that info in a separate
message.  I had been under the impression that Martin had put one of the
nohang patches into the next version already, but I see now that he
hasn't.  I don't recall any other patches related to hanging that might
already be in the pre-release, but it would still be good to try it.
