CVS operations can take several minutes (I could easily make one last several hours with the right parameters). I've not had any instance of the cvs process hanging for quite a while now... it can take a while to shut down (as it has to delete all its temporary data) which can look like a 'hang' as it can take many minutes depending on now fast the drive with the temp directory is.
